"It was very rewarding to see the joy and pure happiness on the faces of these kids and their families when we were putting those beds together for them."

Size: The blanket needs to comfortably cover a twin bed. We ask the fabric is cut to 2.5 yards.
Style: Each child lists preferred themes and colors when requesting a bed, for example “LOL Dolls”, “videogames”, “baby shark”. We love receiving blankets that can be matched to these types of themes, even if they don’t fit the theme exactly.
High priority need: Solid colored blankets. Blankets with neutral patterns. Cartoon character blankets.
For more information: Please check out our fleece blanket instructions, or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Volunteers also help us collect needed supplies for our Dream Kits - the pillow, mattress pads, sheets, blankets, and stuffed animal that accompany each bed. You can host an in-person or virtual drive in your neighborhood, school, church, or work community. Get our Donation Drive Tool Kit.
"I saw firsthand how a bed can give these kids a sense of pride, this (bed) is mine." – Volunteer
