A New Partner: Welcome Blanket

By Sloane Davidson,  November 11, 2018

We are excited to announce our new partnership with Welcome Blanket.

“The Welcome Blanket Project aims to connect people already living in the United States residents with our country’s new immigrants through stories and handmade blankets, providing both symbolic and literal comfort and warmth. At the same time, the project offers a positive, hands-on way to understand the scope of a 2000-mile border wall and to subvert it from an idea of exclusion to one of inclusion. By participating in this project, people will also come together to talk about immigration policy and how it affects real-live people.”

Welcome Blanket generously gave us blankets for each of the new refugee families in our program. Everyone had fun opening the blanket, reading the story, and wrapping up in the new blanket in preparation for Pittsburgh winter. Thank you Welcome Blanket for sharing these amazing blankets with our families!
