Honoring Your Loved One's Legacy

Wrapped in Love

Our History

An integral part of NJ Sharing Network’s mission is to provide care during and after a donor family's experience. Our organization is looking for ambassadors to knit or crochet beautiful shawls for families of organ and tissue donors. Through the Wrapped in Love program, donor families are honored with handmade shawls that are tangible expressions of comfort and compassion. In joining this program, volunteers are supporting and honoring families whose loved one generously gave the gift of life.

Let's Package Some Shawls!

We meet every 3rd Thursday of the month from 11:00am-12:00pm and 4:30pm-5:30pm in Conference Room C at our headquarters in New Providence. At these meetings, volunteers bring in their finished shawls or lap blankets and we label, package and send them out for families. Yarn can also be picked up at these meetings. **Meeting dates and times are subject to change.

Knit Night at NJ Sharing Network

We meet every 2nd Thursday of the month from 4:30pm-6:30pm in Conference Room C at our headquarters in New Providence. These meetings allow volunteers to work on their current projects and allow new participants to learn how to knit or crochet. Yarn, needles and hooks will be provided.

Live Too Far?

Volunteers who live too far can always get a group started or knit and crochet on their own and simply send in their work! Yarn can also be shipped to your address if requested.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • What size or shape does the shawl have to be? We accept any size and any shape (triangle, rectangle, or even a circle)
  • What colors do you accept? We accept any colors but blue and green match our organization's colors!
  • Do you only accept shawls? No, we think anything that is warm and comforting will match our need! Blankets, lap blankets, and even ponchos work too!
