Comforting Blankets 

A group of people are spreading comfort to cancer patients.And they’re doing that one blanket at a time.Comforting Blankets is a non-profit organization that gives blankets to local cancer patients.Thursday, they were outside Sam’s Club in Bangor collecting blankets and other donations.The organization is trying to round up 500 blankets of any type–homemade or store bought.But the blankets need to be new and unused.Founder, Bobbie Dumond says a blanket can really lift a patient’s spirits.”When they have their cancer treatments they bring them back with them time and time again. They give them comfort while they’re in the hospital, even after their family members have left.”If you missed the blanket drop-off Thursday you can still help out by calling Bobbie at 735-7309.
