GREENVILLE—With the weather getting cooler, a thick warm blanket could make this
time of year a bit more comfortable. The Greenville FFA chapter is making
no sew blankets this week to give to people in need.

FFA members must carefully cut two sheets of 4’x5’ fleece and layer
them together. Then, they cut the edges into strips and tie the two fleece
blankets together. Each banket takes about 15 minutes for a group of four
people to assemble.

The Greenville FFA Chapter hopes to make 60 double layered fleece
blankets to donate. The chapter has voted to donate the no sew blankets to
Florida hurricane relief, local homeless shelter, seeds of hope in Troy, and the
Miami county abuse shelter. The Greenville FFA chapter hopes to brighten
up their holiday with these blankets.
