Are there size limitations for blanket donations?
- There is not a specific size limit for donations. However, we have found blankets that are 50” x 60” are best for transportation and most functional for those receiving blankets. The before mentioned size is big enough to cover a twin sized bed.
Do you accept used blankets?
- We accept new and gently used blankets. Please follow the donation guidelines (posted on the homepage) when donating. Once the blankets arrive to CTB headquarters, we wash the items again prior to distribution.
- As a reminder, if the blanket is too used or worn for you, it is too used and worn for our friends in need. We are not a dump off location! Please discard your worn blankets properly.
