ORGANIZATION: FLEECE & THANK YOU

Image_202209071947

Volunteers (Smile Makers) will be needed to help unload blanket kits out of the truck, set up tables with blanket kits and other resources before the event begins, hand out blanket kits as the event progresses, and help hand out scissors, QR codes, and sharpies. They will help collect and bag finished blankets. Some volunteers will be asked to help record videos of blanket makers once they have finished their blankets. This is a simple task as the video will be recorded on the blanket maker's phone. Volunteers will also be shown how to make these blankets so they can help blanket makers with any questions they may have regarding making their blanket! Other volunteers will be needed to help quality control blankets (fixing blankets as they get completed) as they come in. Lastly, volunteers will be needed to help load the finished blankets in the truck during the end of the event.

Volunteers must be at least 16 years or older.

Mission Statement

Fleece & Thank you, a Michigan-based non-profit organization is dedicated to providing connection, comfort, and hope through its programs, services and materials to children facing illness and their families supporting them.

Description

Our signature program is our blanket-making events, remotely, virtually, and in person. We host over 400 blanket-making events every year, partnering with schools, businesses, and any group you can imagine, to help us achieve our goal of making 30,000 blankets for every child that receives inpatient hospital care.
Every blanket we provide also has a personal video message attached to it from the blanket maker to the recipient in the hospital, who can then send a 'thank-you’ message back to the maker!
