AZ Blankets 4 Kids is an all-volunteer non-profit organization serving children in need in the Phoenix metropolitan area. Our goal is to provide comforting blankets and quilts to needy, seriously ill and traumatized children in our community.
What Kind of Blankets?
AZ Blankets 4 Kids welcomes all handmade blankets. Whether you knit, crochet, quilt, hand sew or machine sew — we welcome your donation. Blankets range in size from infant to teen.
Infant – 38″ to 40″ square
Toddler – 38″ x 44″ to 40″ x 46″
Child – 40″ x 48″
Teen – 40″ x 56″ to 42″ x 60″
Sizes are approximate, but should not be smaller than the suggested sizes. Fabrics should be washable and in child-friendly fabrics and colors. Your tender loving care will mean so much to a child in need.
What Happens Next?
Once we receive your donation, the blankets are sorted by size and prepared for delivery. The blankets are then distributed to our recipient agencies, who then get the blankets to the children they serve.
