Celebrate the Nonprofit Community during the 4th Annual Nonprofit Appreciation Week
Brews, Blankets, Big Impact
We’re thrilled to join forces with both the Westerville Area Chamber of Commerce and the Worthington Area Chamber of Commerce for a fun, unique volunteer event – “Brews & Blankets Challenge” at Zaftig Brewing Company & Taproom, sponsored by Mac Construction, EasyIT, Ahola, Outreach Promos, and Virtual Works. Come out on September 20th from 4:00p – 8:00p for a networking happy hour with a twist- Our friends at My Very Own Blanket are throwing up a challenge for SBC, the two chambers and our networks throughout Central Ohio to come together and see how many no-sew fleece blankets we can make in one afternoon for Ohio’s foster youth.
The project is fun and simple – you don’t have to be crafty or know how to sew! Your $15 registration includes a blanket kit and supplies. Our friends at My Very Own Blanket will be on site and have everything set up for a full crafting takeover at the brewery! Additional blanket kits may be purchased in advance if you’d like to make more than one or sponsor a senior blanket project- all unfinished kits will be made and donated on your behalf by residents at an area senior living facility. We’ll have prizes for the team that makes/donates the most kits for the cause, so bring your entire team for a great teambuilding opportunity!
Rally your small business crew and REGISTER TODAY for networking brews, blanket-making fun, and big community impact!
The Power of a Blanket
My Very Own Blanket is dedicated to warming the heart of every child in the foster care system and other children in need with a blanket, to give them a feeling of comfort, security and most of all, a SMILE! Handmade blankets are created through the loving care of volunteers, and distributed to foster youth not just throughout Ohio, but all over the count. of our ministry.
