Warming Bodies. Warming Hearts.
70,000+ Blankets Collected For the Area's Homeless

What started out as a family school project has turned into a growing grass roots charity. At the start of its 11th year, Blanket Louisville has collected over 70,000+ new and gently used blankets, which have been donated to various homeless shelters in Louisville in cooperation with the Coalition for the Homeless.

Kathy and Steve Fehder started Blanket Louisville to teach their children the importance of helping those in need and giving to the community. They enlisted the help of local schools, churches, organizations, family, and friends going door-to-door asking for blankets. The result has been an outpouring of generosity on the part of all those involved and increasing numbers of blankets collected each year.

Volunteer Opportunities | Our primary collection efforts start in mid-October and end on the Friday before Thanksgiving. Volunteer opportunities include organizing and coordinating a collection effort in schools, churches, organizations, neighborhoods, and workplaces. For information on how you can help, contact Blanket Louisville at kfehder@gmail.com
Donations | We prefer donations of new or lightly used blankets. However, all donations will be gratefully accepted. Please write out all checks to “Blanket Louisville.” All cash donations will go towards the purchase of blankets and/or operation costs.
Blanket Louisville is a 501C3 non-profit charity.
