We have already started collecting blankets for the 2013 year! During the International French School's MLK-day project the children made tied-fleece blankets and colored sheets that will be sewn onto fleece backings.
Just last weekend, a woman contacted me to donate a pile of burgundy and gray fleece throws to Blanketing DC that they had bought in preparation for chilly weather to offer guests at their daughters wedding. It was a wonderful and much appreciated surprise!
