Blankets have comforted children ever since the first knitter put needle to wool at some point along the timeline of human history.
Plainview resident Beverly Artz continues that tradition, volunteering her time to an organization that distributes handcrafted blankets to children undergoing cancer treatment.
Artz recently spent time at Our Lady of Lourdes in Massapequa Park, which hosts a blanket-knitting program every Wednesday, collecting blankets for the nonprofit organization, We Care Blankets.
