Jessica recruited friends and family and, soon, total strangers to make blankets for children in foster care. Over the years, this network of "Blanket Angels" has grown, creating and donating handmade blankets for thousands upon thousands of children, living in Central Ohio and far beyond.
Blankets are made and donated in nearly every state in the U.S. Each one bears the MVOB special tag, with spaces for the maker's name, the child's name, and a note written by the blanket-maker.
In 2022, Blanket Angels exceeded our goal by donating handmade blankets for 39,000+ children in foster care. We began 2023 with a goal of 35,000. Blankets are donated to public and private agencies that care for children in foster care.
