Threads of Love Mission Statement

Jewish tradition has long valued the dignity of every human being. The Threads of Love program, is an expression of that passion for the welfare of the wider Plano community. Threads of Love is a group of woman and young adults who crochet and knit needed items for our community. We supply the Medical City Plano Hospital, the Jewish Family Service, New Hope Hospice Care, and the local VA Hospital.

In 2013, Threads of Love was awarded the Community Service award by the Medical City Plano.

Some of our creations include lap robes for the elderly in wheelchairs and the most adorable stuffed animals for Medical City Plano Hospital. For the Jewish Family Services we make beautiful healing shawls and chemo hats for their cancer support group. For our VA hospital, we make lap robes and tracheotomy covers. We make hats, scarves, lap robes and twiddle blocks for New Hope Hospice Care. For our troops we make helmet liners. Whatever the community needs from us we try to fulfill. To date, we have lovingly created more than 3,000 items. A full list of our available items appears below.

Threads of Love is a project of Chabad of Plano and is supported entirely by your tax-deductible donations. Please make checks out to Chabad of Plano with Threads of Love in the memo.

By donating to the Threads of Love, YOU, are helping US, help OUR community.

Gratitude Notes

The lap blanket was a lovely surprise birthday gift! My husband struggled with illness and he passed away October 15, 2022. He was able to enjoy the lap blanket in spite of that.


Dear Mitzvah Mavens,

Thank you so much for the thoughtful lap blanket for my father. Being here has been extra challenging since it was his 81st birthday on Wednesday. Receiving your handmade gift was a blessing. G‑d bless you and your caring ministry. 

Love, Paige, Jeanne, & Ed
