Binky Patrol brings blankets and comfort to sick and abused children
Volunteers are helping to comfort sick and abused children by providing them with blankets.
Binky Patrol was started seven years ago by volunteers making blankets for sick and traumatized children.
Jeanne Malgioglio put together the first Connecticut chapter of Binky Patrol with the help of several of her Monroe High School students.
“I’m a teacher and I’m a mom so I mean, I just like comforting the kids and I know how meaningful it [is] and it’s great for the kids to help out themselves,” Malgioglio says.
Sophomore Sophie Clarke says it’s a great way to give back to the community and to people in need.
Volunteers recently brought 60 of their blankets to the Center for Family Justice in Bridgeport.
The center helps victims of sexual and domestic abuse.
The Monroe Binky Patrol made over 10,000 blankets over several years.
