195 Blankets, 110 volunteers, 6 hours. AWESOME

195 Blankets, 110 volunteers, 6 hours. AWESOME way to spend MLK. 2014. It was a way to bring together a lot of ages. 

It’s a fun event to host – think about is in your area – gather a bunch of people with SHARP scissors. SHARP – really, or they will all be “borrowing” them from those with sharp scissors.

Get some fabric donated, including sheets from local hotels, cut aways from clothing manufacturers, interior designers – just so it can be washed and is soft. Gather people with machines – they can all plug in and GO, GO, GO!

We made 195 blankets that were already delivered to local area children in Beaverton/Portland Metro. Thank you to our host: Village Baptist Church, our partners in this event – HandsOn Portland, their sponsors the Boeing Company. 

Our chapter event sponsors include: The Sales Lead Management Association, Women with Moxie, Hoffman California Fabrics, Hotel Deluxe in Portland.
