Jewish Blind Send Gifts to Quintuplets

Download PDF for this date

Five bathrobes and five “Little Red Riding Hood” dolls—specially-made gifts from the blind—have been sent to the Dionne Quintuplets for their first birthday, May 28, by the Community Craft Weavers, one of the industrial activities of the Community Workers Auxiliary of the New York Guild for the Jewish Blind.

H. R. Valin, secretary of the Board of Guardians, has advised the Guild that the Minister of Public Welfare, special guardian of the quintuplets, is considering the possibility of the babies wearing the robes on their birthday.
