Project ideas beyond blanket making

2013 Demonstration poster—Service project

Several times a year, we are contacted by youth volunteers interested in support our mission in unique but equally helpful ways; project ideas beyond blanket making.  One such recent project was completed by a young lady who constructed a demonstration poster for us to use when we give live presentations at schools, community centers and volunteer conferences.  The table top tri-fold standee is ideal for sharing our mission and accomplishments with volunteers we meet at special events.

Somerset, NJ — DayON4Service “Project Blankie” team making blankets! These youth volunteers loved working on this wonderful project and will be delighted to know their handiwork will provide comfort to so many tiny recipients and their families. Several students expressed a wish to continue the project beyond our service day, so we will be sending more blankets soon! We look forward to partnering with Blankie Depot again. — Library Assistant, Community Service Coordinator
