Donate Blankets to Bubba’s Blankets
Since 2012, Bubba’s Blankets has distributed thousands of blankets to men, women, and children battling cancer. This project was founded by Jimmy Myrick Jr. who passed away in 2016, after a five year battle with leukemia, was inspired by the simple gift of a blanket. Finding strength to inspire hope and others fighting cancer, Jimmy distributed cozy blankets to fellow patients. Jimmy’s elves continue his legacy of love by collecting and distributingblankets for UMMC Greenbaum Cancer Center (MD), UPenn Abramson Cancer Center (PA), and Childrens National Medical Center Pediatric Oncology (DC).
