The Veritas Volunteers Club at St. Mary’s Dominican High School collected approximately 50 blankets that will be distributed to a local shelter this winter. Nikki’s Blankets was started in 2009 in Orlando, Fl, by a nine-year-old girl named Nikki who asked Santa for blankets to give to the homeless or anyone in need. The organization has grown beyond Florida. In New Orleans, Nikki’s cousin, Dan Fowler, is helping to spread the mission of Nikki’s Blankets. The blankets collected at Dominican will be distributed to the New Orleans Mission.
