Comfort Shawls

Over the years, volunteers have provided hundreds of shawls to help comfort and provide warmth to Black River Memorial Hospital (BRMH) Hospice patients in the Jackson County area. Patients receive a comfort shawl upon entry to the hospice program. BRMH is once again seeking volunteers who know how to knit or crochet and are interested in helping.

Patterns are available for printing for private use, from the BRMH website with permission from shawlministry.com.

Completed shawls can be dropped off at:

B-Home Services and Supplies
311 County Highway A
Black River Falls, WI.

Please attach a note with the name and address of who made the shawl. Also, include the number of hours it took to make it.
