Minnesota Branch of Warming Families

Hi! Welcome to the Minnesota Chapter of Warming Families. We are part of a larger project, sponsored by One Heart Foundation and TheFamily.Com. Our goal is to get people, like you, to become involved with helping those in homeless shelters and domestic abuse shelters by creating and donating homemade blankets/afghans/quilts, warm clothing items and toys such as teddy bears. It's a tremendous challenge to provide as many shelters, as possible with warm blankets, but we feel we can make a significant difference with the help of local crafters. EVERY donation does make a difference.

My name is Jeanne Morgan and I am the Minnesota Volunteer Coordinator for this project. I act as a liaison between shelters and area volunteers by collecting donations and delivering them to Minnesota shelters. Currently I am delivering to local Twin Cities area shelters , but will be expanding to shelters throughout the state as donations increase.

How You Can Help.....

  • DONATE A BLANKET/AFGHAN/QUILT! Knit, crochet, quilt or sew a blanket and donate it to Warming Families. Common Comforter Sizes Include; Crib Size: 30x36 inches, Twin: 66x86 inches, Full: 76x86 inches, Queen: 86x88 inches and King: 102x88 inches.

  • DONATE 6" CROCHET OR KNIT SQUARES AND/OR QUILT TOPS! We'll make them into blankets.

  • DONATE OTHER ITEMS! Hand made or purchased warm clothing items and toys are always needed by the shelters. Hats and Headbands, Gloves and Mittens, Socks and Slippers, Sweaters, Teddy Bears and Dolls....

  • START A WEEKLY/BI-MONTHLY PROJECT GROUP! Begin a knitting, crocheting, or quilting group working together to make blankets for Warming Families. Invite families to join together to work in unison on a common project. There is something for everybody to do - crochet, knit, sew, cut out squares, tie quilts, donate materials or a meeting place...

  • SPREAD THE WORD!!! Tell others in your area, church, school or any other group to participate in Warming Families.

  • If you're knowledgeable about Web Building - I could use any advice to build a better site to help promote this project!
