Join us in making no-sew fleece blankets and stuffing socks with snacks for local homeless shelters. New sock donations are welcome!
This project engages individuals and families in a fun, hands on activity which involves little to no skill. Adults and children (ages 9+) can collectively combat blanket shortages at this event. Children ages 12+ can prepare a blanket on their own with minimal guidance. Children ages 9-11 can prepare a blanket with help from an adult. Although this is a great way to engage children to give back to the community, we will need an adequate number of adults to assist our youth volunteers. Each blanket will take ~1 hour to assemble in full. A $12 donation covers the expense of 1 blanket. **These blankets will be purchased in bulk by COMMUNITY SJP.** Recipients of these blankets include domestic abuse shelters, homeless shelters, hospitals, and more.
This event is FREE to attend! Please RSVP so we can keep track of headcount!
