Details About Blanket Drive

What organizations could use the blankets

Surprisingly a lot of organizations could use new and used blankets. They do not have a list of all the organizations they will be distributing to, but I can imagine they will go to places like Valley House, Voices Against Violence and Idaho Angels. Those are just a few. We will let you know where the blankets will be distributed when we get more information.
