A blanket may seem like a simple gift but think how much warmth and comfort your favorite blanket provides for you when you are cold or lonely. Let's share that cozy feeling with veterans and deployed service members! Soldiers' Angels is collecting NEW blankets of any kind (store bought, handmade, no-sew, etc.) to distribute to veterans in VA Hospitals and ship to deployed service members. Although not required, feel free to include a thank you card attached to the blanket. If you choose to send a note of thanks, it's best if it's a postcard or other card not in an envelope, so that our staff can review the card. We will do our best to keep the cards with the blankets once we receive them, however, if your cards are separate from the blanket or in an envelope, there's a higher chance they will get separated during our receiving process as we will have to open and read each card.
