Thank You For Supporting Our Eco-Blanket Donation Campaign


For the second winter in a row, the JBJ Soul Foundation has offered a blanket donation campaign online. We have blankets for sale, donation, or you could buy one/donate one. Once the blankets are donated, they are shipped to the Foundation office where we contact our community partners involved in homeless outreach programs to see who is in need of extra blankets for those they serve. This winter, thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we were able to send blankets to the outreach programs of three of our partners: Project H.O.M.E.’s “Hub of Hope”, Joseph’s House, and Covenant House’s new outreach program in Camden, NJ.
