10th Annual Share the Warmth Blanket Drive

This year marks the 10th year for Sleep Experts' Share the Warmth Blanket Drive.

From October 28th through Thanksgiving Day, the locally-based corporation will be accepting donations of new and gently used blankets, as well as sheets, comforters, towels and pillows, at any of 55 Sleep Experts locations in North and Central Texas.

The beneficiaries of this year's Share the Warmth Blanket Drive are The Family Place in Dallas-Fort Worth, and SafePlace in Austin, as well as other domestic violence shelters in D-FW and Austin. In December, Sleep Experts will deliver all the items collected during the drive to these shelters, in order to keep their families warm this winter season.

And for the third year, thousands of Girl Scouts from three Texas Girl Scout councils - Northeast Texas (Dallas), Texas Oklahoma Plains (Fort Worth) and Central Texas (Austin) will lend a helping hand. Girl Scout troops participate by collecting blankets in their own communities and will earn special Share the Warmth community service badges.

So how can you help?  Clean out your closet and donate a blanket today.  It's a simple way to help a family in need.
