PRINCETON, W.Va. (WVVA) - Blankets are being collected for kids in foster care. This is the Braley and Thompson Foster Care Program’s inaugural Wrapped In Love’ drive. Organizers say it is important to ensure these children have something that belongs only to them.

“We want to try and give them something that belongs only to them when they get to a new home. Not something that another kid has used. So it’s just a really great opportunity to welcome kids into care and make them feel loved, especially at this time of the year.” said Recruiter and Trainer, Melanie Lambert.
