Make Blankets for Children in Need

A warm, cozy blanket can make quite a difference for children facing tough circumstances like foster care or homelessness. That's why we include a blanket in each First Hand Care Kit we deliver. Use these easy-to-follow instructions to make blankets (typically made from fleece fabric). When you’re finished contact us to coordinate delivery.

Assemble Care Kits

We have limited space and availability to host groups at our office. When you come to the office, you can count inventory, stock shelves, and/or build First Hand Care Kits – putting the blankets, pajamas, hygiene items, books, and other age-appropriate items into the bags. If you’re interested, please contact us.

Host a Collection Drive

If you'd like to get a scout troop, sports team, youth group, or other organization involved in supporting First Hand, you can host a collection drive. Throughout the year, nearly all of our programs accept in-kind donations to be able to provide children and families with educational materials and comfort items.

The items needed vary. Please contact us to find out what is currently on our wish list and to coordinate delivery.
