Started by Maddie & Morgan Manning, the Bundle Up Club is a non-profit organization on a mission to make a difference in the world by providing hand-made blankets, hats, scarves, and other goods to those in need.
Maddie & Morgan want people to know they’re valuable; they want them to feel loved. They want the homeless, the needy, the less-fortunate, the forgotten to know they are worth the investment of their time and effort and work and thoughts and prayers.
It's a cold world outside - let's blanket them in His love.
Matthew 25:36
Thank you for your help and support!

AdaFest Update and a Blanket Party!

Big thanks to everyone who visited our booth at AdaFest! We had a great time meeting new people and telling them all about The Bundle Up Club, and we enjoyed visiting with faithful friends and supporters. It was really hot out there, but we were still able to sell quite a few baked goods. We also sold a few pieces of Morgan's artwork, as well as some of Maddie's crocheted items. In total, we raised roughly $300 to go toward finishing up our project for Mama T's.

Here are a few pictures from the day:

Special thanks to Charles and Becky Shinault for use of their real estate at Hot Shots Coffee House! Also, a BIG SHOUT out goes to those who sweated it out with us -- Nancy Prater, Rozanna Grove, Emily Ford, Brinley Blankenship, and Daizy Cuevas. We also appreciate Nancy, Rozanna, and Becky helping us with baking.

Our next big work day is right around the corner! We will be hosting a blanket-making party on Saturday, September 24th from 1-5 pm. This is a come and go event, but if you want to stay the whole time, we'll let you! We'll have snacks and drinks and a load of fun chatting, and learning to make blankets. We have a lot of blankets left to make to donate to Mama T's for their grand opening, and we need your help! This is a great way to join with others to serve those less fortunate in our own community. Community service letters will be available upon request.
