Christmas Blankets for Foster Youth

Please help me in making the holidays a bit more special this year. I am a mental health therapist serving female foster youth in residential care ages 13-18 and am raising funds in efforts to gift them blankets for Christmas. The holidays are a tough time of year for these teens who have to spend them either away from their families, or do not have families to call their own. The girls I serve currently reside in a group home and have very little of their own belongings and this gift would make it very special and unique to them. They have all experienced childhood trauma from a very young age. They have lived very difficult lives encompassed by many different barriers including abuse, neglect, homelessness, and mental health challenges. Please help by donating to help make their holidays the best it can possibly be given their unfortunate circumstances. Any amount helps. Thank you!
