We are beyond excited to announce the completion of our 1st Blanket Drop donation event! Due to the sales of our San Diego State Aztecs Blanket for a Blanket we were able to donate 104 brand new blankets to Dreams for Change this past evening in San Diego at their Safe Parking facility near downtown San Diego.
The Safe Parking Program provides a safe parking environment and supportive services for transitional homeless living in their vehicles for overnight stays. Family advocates construct an action plan with each participant placing emphasis on permanent housing solutions, employment, training, emergency supports and asset stabilization and building.
We had the pleasure of giving away over 20 new blankets while we were there and visited with several of their clients. It was a really great evening and we are grateful to be able to support the great work that Dreams for Change is doing in the San Diego community.
And....thank you SDSU fans for your support. We can't wait for our next San Diego blanket drop event which we hope will be during the holiday season.
