Many of you know that besides running this blog, I also collect fleece for making blankets for local Utah police stations. I have partnered with Hearts Knit Together, and we need 25 blankets each month to start this project. We are beginning with West Jordan Police Station. If we can get enough interest from our communities we will expand as quickly as the donations come in.
Our biggest struggle is trying to get the fleece donations. Hearts Knit Together easily receives donations for all the other supplies for the kits.
I am happy to post that I have found a source that will allow me to make a blanket(1 1/4 yards) for $5. This is such a great deal! If you feel like you have a bit extra in your budget, you can reach out to me or venmo(@emma-drennan-78) me a donation. All donations go to purchasing the fleece.
The fleece blankets are put into bags that the officers can keep in their vehicles. That way they are ready for a moment’s notice. The bags keep them nice and clean until they are needed.
Thank you so much for your help in supporting our local Utah police officers.
I am hoping at a certain point to be able to find a way to donate through Hearts Knit Together so that your donations will be 100% tax deductible. But right now, there is no way to separate out which donations are specifically for purchasing fleece. Thank you for your patience in this.
Life is Good. Share the Good.
PS If this doesn’t fit in your plans, maybe it does for someone else. I would be so grateful if you would share this post and spread the word. Thank you!
