Make Fleece Blankets

Help youth stay warm with homemade no-sew blankets! This is a fun and creative way to help youth. These blankets will get lots of love in the apartment a young person just moved into, in one of our shelters, or anywhere where youth can snuggle up and feel its warmth. You can volunteer on your own time and make these blankets anywhere! Pick out some fun (youth-appropriate) fleece and a pair of scissors! We recommend this YouTube video to get instructions. We need twin-sized or queen-sized blankets the most!

Make T-Shirt Bags

Turn your old t-shirts into reusable tote bags! This is a fun and creative way to help youth! They can use your creations when grocery shopping instead of paying extra for paper bags at the store. You can volunteer on your own time and make these bags anywhere—all you need are t-shirts and a pair of scissors! We recommend checking out this YouTube video for easy instructions. Fill your bags with your favorite new, non-perishable snacks, hygiene items, or school supplies as an added bonus—so appreciated for the young people we serve!
