The San Diego Rescue Mission among several other area philanthropies are in need of these "No-Sew" Fleece blankets.  The homeless population have been set up in the downtown San Diego Convention Center and they are in need of hundreds of these blankets.

Please find attached the following files to assist you and/or your entire family to help serve those in need.  When you have completed your No-Sew Fleece Blanket(s), then text Colleen Ster at 858-752-3286 for directions on where to drop off your finished blanket.  Many philanthropies are not open and coordinating specific times for donations to be delivered to their clients.

1. Fleece fabric can be ordered online from Wal-Mart and will be shipped to your house in a couple of days.  For your convenience, use this link to order the fleece fabric that is already pre-cut into 2 yard increments.  You need to order two, 2-yards of coordinating fleece fabric prints and/or solid that you will tie together to connect the two layers of fleece fabric.  For example, if Wal-Mart is sold out of their solid colors, you can order one 2-yard increment of the blue soccer ball fleece print and then you can choose to match it to either the red or green soccer ball fleece print.
