Who We Are
Blankets & Blessings, Inc was started back in 2012 when 8 year old Will wanted to collect blankets for some of the homeless people he encountered in his community. Together with his parents, Will held his first blanket drive. Since then B&B has continued to grow and in 2015, the local non-profit obtained their 501c3 charitable status.
