With A Purpose Provides Blankets for "1Day" Event

Thanks to purchases from the Florida State Seminoles Blanket for a Blanket, With A Purpose donated blankets to Blanket Tamba Bay to benefit those in need in Tampa Bay through an event called "1Day."

The "1Day" event was comprised of multiple activities for volunteers to participate in. Some handed out lunches in brown paper bags and talked with the people they met along the way. Others partnered with the Tamba Bay Police Department in traveling to different areas of the city and building relationships. 

"The part of the event I was at offered haircuts to the homeless, breakfast, Medical and Dental services and backpacks with hygiene products and of course the beautiful blankets," said Beth Ross of Blanket Tamba Bay.

Blanket Tampa Bay is a non profit that focuses on serving the homeless in  their community by gathering and distributing daily and seasonal items such as hygiene products, clothing, rain gear and blankets. 

Overall, 31, 900 blankets have been donated by With A Purpose nationwide. Stay tuned for more Blanket Drop Stories!
