By 2000, we had grown considerably in knit, crochet and quilting volunteers and our next challenge was recruiting a dedicated delivery team to help us reach recipients county to county.  During our first noticeable growth spurt, our Caravan of Love was born!  Each year, a team of people volunteer their time by transporting handmade donations to all 21 counties in NJ; week by week as we work through our recipient roster.  300-600 handmade items every week head out our doors, delivered by this very dedicated team.

I know without our volunteers stopping by with pickups from our drop off bins and the delivery team coordinating donations we would be hard pressed to meet the needs of our clients on a regular basis.  If you would like to join our team the application process begins here:  http://www.blankiedepo.org/caravan-of-love/driver-application-form/

So join me in acknowledging our current team of busy drivers:  Danny, Greg, Al, Kim, Wendy, Cliff & Liz, Judy, Debbie, Mary Ann, Jeannette, Jane, Nicole, Beverly, Pat, Patti and Anne.

Thank YOU, Caravan of Love!
