‘i understand’, Project #EAS host Blanket Drive for Pine Rest Patients

December 6, 2023

“We are taking our tragic story and turning it into something beautiful.” — Sarah Spitler

The i understand love heals non-profit organization and Project #EAS, courtesy of the late Eric Spitler’s family, is once again collaborating on a blanket drive this holiday season, to bring hope and healing to Pine Rest patients!

Now through December 31, 2023, anyone can donate a new, unused blanket to one of several drop-off locations around Grand Rapids. On January 4, the blankets will be delivered to Pine Rest to serve as comfort gifts for patients experiencing mental health crises.

This drive is being made in memory of local father Eric Spitler, who tragically lost his life to suicide in 2021. Eric’s family have made it their mission to save lives one blanket at a time.

Interested in donating to this effort and/or want to learn more? See the list of drop-off sites on the i understand Facebook page, or send an email to info@iunderstandloveheals.org.
