We welcome "blanket angels" of all ages, from Scouts to seniors and everyone in between
We are happy to provide Scouts and their leaders with the materials and information they need to make blankets for children in foster care. This comment is from a Scout leader who purchased fleece blanket kits for her troop: My Very Own Blanket staff were friendly and spent time explaining how I’ll need to help my Troop of 5-7 year olds make blankets for other children. It’s a wonderful and worthy outreach cause that I will happily continue to support.
This video about the value of community service includes My Very Own Blanket. Just Serve, an online service which connects volunteers with service opportunities in their area, is sponsored by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
We are thankful for this note we received recently that reflects the difference our dedicated volunteers make by creating handmade blankets for children in foster care: Jessica, you have created an organization that is so wonderful, so important to kids who need a sense of self. Think of all the young lives who have been touched by MVOB. Just wonderful. Susan B.
