MONUMENT, Colo. (KRDO) — A local family is using social media to hopefully find a handmade baby blanket mistakenly donated to Goodwill in Monument several months ago.
The blanket is similar to the blue blanket in the Facebook post. The missing blanket is pink and white with nine panels. Within the panels, Jordan Borski's grandmother hand-stitched scenes from nursery rhymes, like Jack and Jill and Little Bo Peep. The blanket is about 40 inches wide and 50 inches long. The back is light pink with rosebuds.
“That was my first baby blanket," Borski said. "That was my mom’s first gift after she struggled to get pregnant.”
Borksi's family had been holding onto the 35-year-old heirloom to pass down to the next generation.
It wasn’t until recently that they realized it was accidentally placed in a donation box destined for the Goodwill in Monument back in March or April when they cleaned out their closets.
KRDO visited the Goodwill in Monument where the blanket was accidentally dropped off. Employees have scoured the store in search of the blanket, and say it’s no longer there. Goodwill says it’s likely the blanket ended up in another one of its stores around the region, if it hasn’t been sold already.
“We have 42 stores throughout the state of Colorado, so once it goes through our processing at our outlet store, it could possibly be redistributed to any one of those stores," Bradd Hafer, the marketing and communications manager for Goodwill of Colorado, said.
The family is offering a reward for someone to part ways with the blanket. If you have any information, please email Jordan Borski: Jordan.firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also bring the blanket to any Goodwill store in the area and employees will help with the reunion.
Goodwill is now open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sundays. Due to COVID-19, donation center hours have been reduced to to 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily.
