DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – As the cooler fall air creeps into the Miami Valley, a local group is ready to wrap up those in need.
Dozens of volunteers gathered at Warped Wing in Downtown Dayton to make blankets to give away.
This is the third year they’ve held the blanket-making party.
Last year, they exceeded their goal of 500 blankets.
Organizers say it’s a rewarding way to give back.
“When we’ve given the blankets to people in our community, we’ve had them come back and thank us so it’s really a very personal project for us and it’s great to just be there to help our community as a community,” said Jeremy Lewis, assistant director of operations.
The finished blankets will be donated to area homeless shelters and Dayton Children’s Hospital.
