Making an impact one blanket
at a time!

As a result of contributions from individuals and groups, "Blanketing DC" has collected over 3,600 blankets since 2008 and donated them to local DC-area charities! We collect blankets year-round and disperse to local DC-area charities generally bi-annually in February and December. 
Visit About Us page learn more about our efforts or our Gallery area, which displays examples of blankets donated by year.

If you are interested in donating blankets, we have multiple ways to contribute: Order from our Amazon wish list, check out our FAQs page for ideas, or contact us directly: dcblankets [at] cybersailors.org.
