Legislator Drucker Salutes ‘We Care Blankets’ for Philanthropic Efforts

(PLAINVIEW, N.Y.) – Nassau County Legislator Arnold W. Drucker (D – Plainview) recently had the pleasure of meeting Tamara “Tammy” Baker, founder of the not-for-profit “We Care Blankets,” during a recent fundraising event at Organic Krush in Plainview.
For the last 22 years, We Care Blankets has created and donated hand-crafted blankets for children who are fighting cancer. Currently, the organization delivers blankets to hospitals across America and two in Israel.
The Organic Krush fundraiser was the latest example of the Plainview community rallying around this worthwhile cause. Previously, Greenfield ShopRite in Country Pointe Plainview welcomed We Care Blankets to set up a fundraising table at the market; during their three-day stint, they received more than $733 in donations and numerous inquiries about making blankets, donating yarn, and more. The organization’s next wrap is set for Nov. 1 at the Merrick Library.
“At a time where there is so much darkness in the world, it is so refreshing to see people like Tammy performing acts of kindness for people she and her fellow volunteers have never met,” Legislator Drucker said. “I applaud her for committing herself to such a selfless endeavor for more than two decades, and I look forward to working with her in the future as she continues in her mission.”
