Blankie Depot, a volunteer run 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is looking to give back to those affected by Hurricane Sandy. The company aims to provide homemade blankets to the children of New Jersey who suffer from illness or trauma.
At the moment, Blankie Depot is looking to collect large quilts, knitted or crochet hats, scarves, gloves, mittens, children's quilts, fleece blankets, sewn pillow cases, afghans and flannel robes.
A collection bin is currently located at the Monmouth County Library (near the DVD room) in Manalapan Township from now until January 31, 2013.
Blankie Depot requests that all donations be newly made, machine washable, and cleaned before being donated.
Can't make it to the Monmouth County Library? Directly send donations to Blankie Depot headquarters:
79 Jackson Street
Keyport, NJ 07735
Attn: H. Roberts, President
If you are shipping contributions, please place the goods inside of a clear ziplock bag or a tall white kitchen bag before placing them in a shipping box. Please include your name, address, and email in the box if you wish to receive a tax receipt from Blankie Depot.
If you are interested in volunteering with Blankie Depot, please contact the Director by emailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All donations will help the residents displaced by Hurricane Sandy.
