@JT954 I take it you are not in the Panhandle. I keep 2 of these in my own storm kit, and I’m going to send these 4 to the folks in the Panhandle, along with some other supplies. Even in my part of Florida, we love having these on the beach on chilly Nov/Dec/Jan nights…
@JT954 I imagine these are like the ones they sell at Acadamy sports for $4 dollars each…they look about the same. If so, they’re actually very thin, and despite being fleece are not overly warm. I carry a couple in my car for emergencies. Chances are will never need them but you never know.
I hope these ship soon, and I wish I had a spare $60 for the large box. (I can hardly afford the $14.) I am planning on putting these on one of the trucks going up to the panhandle where it’s about to get very cool at night, and they will be in tents or roofless houses. (Yes, I’m also sending food, cleaning supplies, etc. etc. up with our folks who are collecting.) You can fold them up and sit on them, as well as use them to keep warm…and the animals love them for bedding too!
I actually ordered 48 of these - I work for an organization that provides donated gifts to lonely and isolated seniors who are at risk of abuse or neglect. Our target this year is to provide gifts to 400 seniors.
If you’re wondering what to do with these, I recommend finding an organization in your community doing something similar (often they’ll be found as the “Area Agency on Aging”), and donate! These are perfect!
This isn’t a very warm deal. I’m not feeling very blanketed by this deal.
Look meh it’s been too many days without a response from the staff. I am determined and now my next mission is a Christmas list, sponsored by meh and presented by everyone who posts on my comment. Without further ado, I present the meh Christmas shopping list:
IRK Plushies, Mehgic 8 Ball (all responses some form of meh.), Squatty Potty (because we don’t have the fukubukuro anymore and our crap needs to go somewhere), AAA batteries, poop meh emoji pillows, and candy corn because it’s near Halloween duh.
Only 2.50 each at Walmart - same size… same price if my math skills are still sharp (if you buy the big bundle). I know it only says 5 left, but just throwing it out there that these are same price… no meh bargain
I do Sunday school curricula, and our children are doing a service project to collect warm things for the homeless. We’re going to make tie-off scarves out of fleece, and I was worried about getting a good price for fleece, and damn is this a great price for fleece. Any leftover blankets can be donated as-is.
