This Holiday Season 347 Warm Blanket Hugs were shared to those in need of love and comfort! Thank you to our local volunteers for donating, our founder Olivia and The Joy Project for sharing all those blankets. It takes a village and we are thankful for many resources sharing blankets.
To date, we’ve helped in the sharing of 2,068 blankets and 713 of those were donated this year!
Thank you to all our blanket makers, donors, board members, volunteers and every person that helps make our mission possible. We can’t wait to see what 2022 brings!
One year ago we had the opportunity to cross paths with Jason and Kiana from Mission Fargo when they held a blanket making event in which the Cass County Sheriff’s office received the donations.
On Tuesday, we were invited by Jason/Mission Fargo to attend a blanket making event with the Innovators Master Networks Group. The group was very welcoming and it was a good opportunity for the business professionals to hear about our mission but also for us to hear about their business and needs.
The group made a bakers dozen blankets (I relate everything to donuts or tacos) which will be donated to the Cass County Sheriff’s along with the Fire Department. These departments keep them in their vehicles in the event they need them for emergency situations.
Thank you to Master Networks and Mission Fargo for allowing us the opportunity! We love being able to share what Warm Blanket Hugs is all about.
Thank you so much for your generous donation of blankets! Our patients will greatly appreciate them. I just wanted to write and let you know that what you are doing is wonderful and appreciated by all you help I’m sure! Thank You,
Wednesday evening I got to speak to the Hope Lutheran Church South confirmation class about Warm Blanket Hugs. It was a neat experience and I really enjoyed their worship. Stefanie (Director of Confirmation) talked about how even kids in 6th-8th grade can make a difference in the world. Even something small can make a difference. Thank you Stefanie and Hope for allowing me to talk, I greatly appreciate it!
Sunday afternoon I visited the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Red River Valley to deliver 16 Warm Blanket Hugs we made at the blanket making event at AquablueFM. Thank you Leann (AquaBlue) for coordinating the delivery and thank you Jill (RMHC) for the tour! I’m excited to continue to help the Ronald McDonald House in the future in different ways.
