In the Fall of 2016, SSSIO volunteers from the Sri Sathya Sai Center of Lincoln-Omaha, Nebraska, made Comfort Care blankets for terminally ill patients. The Sai Center members enthusiastically involved their children in this task. The volunteers have since delivered more than 220 blankets to patients at the St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Lincoln, Nebraska.
The nursing staff conveyed how much the patients love the colors and designs on the blankets, saying, “Everything is pretty dull in their lives, but these blankets have added back some color and brought some cheer.” The Center also received a note of gratitude from one of the patients: “All of you are exposing your children to what a big heart means. Helping those going through a difficult time is a great service. You are teaching your children that even though there is human pain and suffering, they can be loving and caring people who can make a difference in our world. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you, your family, and friends.”
