Mission of Blankets 4 Kids: Every Child Deserves Comfort, Warmth and Security
There are low income families who are struggling for the bare essentials: Food, Clothing and Shelter. The circumstances causing this family dilemma may be varied, i.e., loss of job, foreclosure, illness, addiction, but the results remain fairly constant: there are children who desperately need for our assistance. There are so many families suffering in Yavapai County! Unemployment in some places like Black Canyon City and Ashfork is so high that too often families are slipping into homelessness.
This organization donates thousands of these blankets, wrapped up in a roll with a scarf and hat inside, teddy bear’s head sticking merrily out the top. What joy this brings to youngsters! No child in America should be cold. All children need a stuffed animal to snuggle and comfort them! We are on a mission to make sure that every child that has a need to warmth and comfort will receive it.
Drop off comfort items
Blankets 4 Kids works closely with various children’s agencies, distributing these “Comfort Items” to them so that may provide them to the children in need. We also hold Blanket-Thons at Christmastime where families who pick up their food basket from the Yavapai Food Bank can also receive these blankets and bears directly.

The Blankets4Kids Warehouse
The blankets are rolled and each one is stuffed with a “Hat, Scarf and a Stuffed Animal”. They are placed on the racks depending on their size and gender. The adult blankets and comforters are sorted by their sizes, i.e. Twin, Queen & King Size. Every item that leaves the warehouse is either a new item or one that has been cleaned if used!
The organization has funding needs, in order to carry out its mission the major areas that are identified are in the following categories:
- Acquisition of Items
- Assembly and Packaging of Items
- Distribution of Items to Agencies and Direct to Children/Families.
