Service Learning

Student Participants

Students participating in Blankie Depot’s service learning programs are coordinated with leadership from NJ schools, colleges, scouting, libraries, summer camps and museum art programs. To date, more than 45,000 students have participated in our programs donating a total of 22,000 blankets.


It is clear that today’s youth will bring excitement and energy to community programs that reinforce the scope of volunteerism and given the opportunity take a personal role in contributing to our world.

Completed art murals have reached children as far as India and adorn the hallways, hospital rooms and bedroom walls of some of the most fragile children Blankie Depot has reached locally, national and internationally.

What better voices of volunteerism than our children. Partners in healing, on a mission of hope.

Our Kids Helping Kids Mural Program has over 440 schools and community groups to thank with collectively more than 34,000 individual blankets completed.
