ABC AmeriCorps Blankets for Veterans

ABC AmeriCorps members were able to make tie blankets during their Friday meeting the week before Veterans Day. In addition, Members worked with the schools and afterschool programs where they serve to collect thoughtful notes and coloring pages. These goods were packaged up and delivered to Dixon Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center the same day. All Veterans received a care package as a thank you for their service. There were 8 veterans: 2 Navy (one woman was in the nurse corps), 3 Marines, 1 Air Force, and 2 Army.


“Before making the blankets, we were told the veterans would steal each other's from last year. While making the blankets, I felt really good inside knowing they would have fresh new ones with new patterns.”
-Maya Moss

“Having the chance to make them blankets made it such a special experience. I am glad we got to make them something they will love and use during the winter!”
-Angie Arrezola
