Blankets for A Place To Dream

The Pooler Lions Club sponsors a knitting & crocheting group that makes handmade items for different charities and meets the first and third Saturdays of the month at Stir Coffee at 2pm. We are currently making blankets for children who receive beds and bedding from A Place to Dream. Guests and beginners are welcome to join us.

About A Place to Dream

Each night in our coastal community, there are children sleeping on floors, couches, chairs or sharing beds with multiple family members. The YMCA of Coastal Georgia believes that all kids deserve a space to call their own and a place to dream.

On November 16, 2019, the YMCA, in partnership with the Housing Authority of Savannah, launched A Place to Dream. The launch date began by providing 28 beds, full sheet and comforter sets along with bags filled with toys, books and stuffed animals to 13 families in our local Savannah community. Since the program’s inception, it has placed more than 200 beds for children in homes.
