Blanket BC Society was inspired by Founder, Gregory Ould and his son Benjamin after a homeless person simply asked for a blanket to survive the night. That one basic request in 2005 catapulted Greg's commitment to collect and distribute blankets and warm clothing to shelter programs and families in need. His mission is to not only help those in need but to raise awareness of homelessness, poverty, and social-economic needs in an effort to foster "beautiful communities" (BC) while encouraging volunteerism at a young age. Gregs own three children have been volunteering with him since an early age.
