  • Announcement – Warren Tu

    When we started 300 Blankets, I never imagined that it would grow and accomplish as much as it has nine years later. I remember when we received our first delivery of blankets, my house was also our store room and I had to live with climbing over boxes to get in and out of my […]

After volunteering their time to assist a local soup van distribute food to those in need, the founders of 300 Blankets came to understand that, after food and water, blankets were the most sought after item by those […]

  • Winter Ends Tomorrow!

    This winter has been colder and more horrible than some that we’ve had for a while. By early July, our friends on the street were already counting down the days till we reach the middle of winter – “the sooner we get to the middle of winter, the sooner winter will pass.” To battle the cold […]
