Keep Irving Beautiful (KIB) is proud to welcome the members of Girl Scouts of America Troop 3473 of Irving to The Blanket Project. KIB supplied 5 members of Troop 3473 with fleece material. The girls worked together to complete three hand-made “no-sew” baby blankets.
KIB started the Blanket Project in the summer of 2016, with a church youth group and a handful of summer campers. Since that summer, KIB has partnered with a number of faith-based groups and community organizations, as well as several local Girl Scout and Cub Scout troops. The blankets made through this project benefit local non-profit organizations, who distribute them to families in Irving and surrounding communities.
KIB Board member and Faith Groups Outreach Chair Rachel Moon says the project serves as a channel to bring so many members of the Irving community together, “We have found that this project has been a great way for volunteers to connect with each other and feel that they are making a difference. It has increased their awareness of the many organizations that exist to help our fellow community members.”
