Sherwood garage sale will benefit Doernbecher

The MOMS Club of Sherwood, east, is having a charity garage sale to benefit the Doernbecher Children's Hospital Cuddle Blanket Program. It will be held on Murdock Road in Sherwood on Saturday, April 14, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The garage sale will also feature the sale of Krispy Kreme doughnuts and beverages, and a raffle of new merchandise.

The MOMS club got involved in the Cuddle Blanket Program five years ago when a previous members, Michelle Stormont, became a Life Flight Nurse at Doernbecher. The group provides approximately 70 percent of the cuddle blankets for this hospital. The blankets are given to children from the first moment they come in or are picked up. They help to make these sick children feel comforted and less afraid.
