Vermont Business Magazine In 1998, to provide area community organizations with blankets to help Vermonters in need, New England Federal Credit Union (NEFCU) conducted its first Blankets of Hopeä Drive. Now in its 19th year, the NEFCU Blankets of Hopeä drive has collected and distributed thousands of blankets to organizations including the Committee on Temporary Shelter (COTS), Spectrum Youth & Family Services, Samaritan House, and others.
This year, as in years past, the drive begins on December 1 and ends on December 31. New and gently used blankets may be dropped off at any NEFCU branch, the addresses of which are available at nefcu.com. Blankets will be cleaned and packaged by Greer’s Professional Fabricare Services.
