My Very Own Blanket has been selected by The Columbus Foundation for a Better Together project to provide improvements in our workshop. New chairs, sewing machines, cutting mats and other tools will improve our work space for the volunteers who spend hours there contributing to our mission.

Better Together projects are opportunities to improve our community, together. Let’s make the Columbus region better together—please consider joining us to help provide a better work environment for our volunteers.

  • Order blanket kits online. Pick up inside our workshop Monday - Friday, 9 am to Noon, or use our 24-hour curbside bin just outside our door.

The Village Foster Care Closet

The Village is a foster care closet operated by the Idaho Foster & Adoptive Parent Association. They collect essential care and comfort items (including blankets!) for youth of all ages and invite CASA workers, social workers, and foster families to bring foster children to their store to choose what they need and want free of charge.

We are proud to share the blankets you make with organizations like The Village.
Robyn, California Foster Mom

Robyn is a foster parent who is starting a giveaway program in California that includes MVOB blankets. She wrote to us:

"I am putting together a blanket/book give away for children in foster care here in Sacramento County.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving to our kids. I hope this will be an ongoing giveaway for every child that comes into care in our county."
