Inside Out Club Making Blankets for Comfort for Critters

January 27 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Help take care of shelter animals by making a soft blanket for them.

At this hands-on Inside Out Club event, we will:

  • Make small fleece tie blankets to be donated to Comfort for Critters. Comfort for Critters ships blankets to more than 200 humane societies over the country. They have given out more than 69,000 blankets!
  • Learn about how we all have a responsibility to care for animals and how our kindness will positively impact so many animals’ lives.

What You Need to Bring

We will provide all of the supplies. If you’d like to bring a small donation for Comfort for Critters to help offset their shipping costs, we will collect it and give it to them with the blankets.

Where and When

This event takes place at the Fry Family YMCA Hangout Room from 3-4 p.m.

This is a great way to teach social responsibility, demonstrate kindness and have fun volunteering as a family.
