What started out as a family school
project has turned into a growing grass roots charity.
At the start of its 14th year, Blanket Louisville has collected over 100,000+ new and gently used
blankets, which have been donated to various homeless
shelters in Louisville.
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.
Our primary collection efforts start in mid-October and continue through to the end of March. 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
| 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.
