Live with Purpose

Your Way. Your Time. How can YOU Live with Purpose?

Holidays, Life celebrations, Birthdays … Live with Purpose is your ticket to adding meaningful service throughout the year! JVC provides you with ideas and tools for volunteer projects that you can do in your home, your workplace and out in the community. Project themes are connected with holidays and other key calendar dates. Or you can always customize your own project!

No-Sew Fleece Blankets

Easy to do while watching a game, no-sew fleece blankets is a family-friendly project that will help people in need this fall! All blankets will be donated to a local homeless shelter (TBA) to help keep their residents warm and cozy. Make your own or contact JVC to purchase all the supplies needed!

  1. Choose fleece, any color or style that you like! A standard twin size blanket is about 95 inches long x 70 inches wide.
  2. Line up the two fabrics, right side out. Trim both to the same size.
  3. Cut a 5-inch square from each of the four corners
  4. Cut fringe on all four sizes of the blanket. Cut through both layers of fabric at the same time. Fringe should be a little wider than the width of your finger and about 5 inches deep.
  5. With all the fringes lined up, start tying knots (tying together the top and bottom fleece). Work your way around the fleece blanket.
  6. Donate to JVC! JVC will collect and donate all finished products to Sarah’s Hope, a shelter for women and children. You will feel good that you positively impacted someone’s life!
