Whew, time has slipped by and we’ve neglected our blogging…let’s get you updated!
Our Board of Directors have been hard at work planning out our year. We have a lot instore and can’t wait to share it all with you!
In Jan/Feb, Wendy (ED) and Marisa (Board Member) started collecting blankets that will be donated in April for Youth Service Day.
Thank you to one of our amazing volunteers Dawn!!! She works hard at sewing all our scraps of fleece to make dog/cat blankets and even makes this for them to. We are so thankful to her and her husband for all their support of our efforts.
Olivia and Wendy dropped off blankets for Box of Balloons in Fargo. Box of Balloons is a great organization that helps ensure that every child is celebrated during their birthday!
In February , Warm Blanket Hugs was able to reach 105 (that we know of) and so many more that we don’t know about. We provided blankets and gift card to Sanford Roger Maris Cancer Center. We reached people through random acts of kindness with leaving quarters in vending machines and laundry along with leaving gift cards around a local grocery store. We provided blankets for Box of Balloons, Inc.- Fargo, ND. We were able to tell our story to PAY (Philanthropy and Youth Barry Foundation) and the West Fargo High School students. Our board members volunteered with Feed my Starving Children and brought awareness on International Epilepsy Day (February 14th).
This is HUGE for a small nonprofit like us. We are so thankful for our donors and volunteers. Thank you to everyone that has helped in anyway.
Stay tuned for our March update!
