The Manteca Children’s Foundation will be conducting their annual Blanket for Kids drive at the Manteca Pumpkin Fair and plan to continue it through the fall.
Collection bins will be located throughout the fairgrounds. Even though it is called Blankets for Kids they are looking for blankets of any size to give to the less fortunate in our community. You may not think that there is a need, but there are many, many families living within the Manteca Community that do not have any heat during the winter let alone adequate blankets. They are looking for serviceable blankets (new or used) and would like them to be clean if possible. If you cannot make a donation during the Pumpkin Fair and would like to make a donation, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will coordinate a place to drop off the blankets.
