First United Bank & Trust, in partnership with the Maryland Bankers Association’s Emerging Leaders Program, will be conducting a FLEECE BLANKET DRIVE beginning now through March 31.

All donations will go to the non-profit, London’s Legacy.  Their mission is to provide handmade fleece blankets to families with children in the pediatric ICU at The University of Maryland Medical Center. These fleece blankets will be given to children both boys and girls up to the age of 18.

London’s Legacy began shortly after the sudden death of two-month-old London Brielle Huber while in the UMMC’s pediatric ICU.  In the hospital, London’s mother, Amy, comforted London by wrapping her in a fleece blanket she received as a gift. Following London’s death, the blanket helped Amy during her grieving process.  Sadly, Amy passed away less than a year later. Before she died, Amy created London’s Legacy to help other families facing similar situations.

Become a part of this wonderful effort by donating one or more of the following at any First United office:

  • One yard of printed fleece material
  • One yard of solid fleece material
  • Completed fleece blankets
  • Monetary donations
