For the past three years, Pam Miller, RN, the director of nursing at the Mount Laurel office of Preferred Home Health Care & Nursing Services, with headquarters in Eatontown, has been creating blankets for the homeless from plastic bags.

Miller cuts plastic strips from the bags and then crochets the strips into blankets. It takes about 900 bags to make one blanket. Miller is asking everyone to donate clean plastic bags no matter their condition.

A drop box for plastic bags is at Preferred’s location in Eatontown. For more information about donating plastic bags, email Lisa Gallicchio at lisa@preferredcares.com or call 732-547-9886.
