Blankets for T.O. hosted our first general meeting of the 2022-2023 academic year this past Wednesday, September 14th, 2022.

Our co-presidents introduced Blankets for T.O. to the student community at the University of Toronto Scarborough. Attendees learned about our inspiration for the organization, our accomplishments thus far, and our goals for the coming year. We setup a Kahoot to test their knowledge on our club, and brought free pizza (!!!) at the end of the event. We gave attendees a chance to buy Blankets for T.O.-themed merchandise (did you know that we have a merch store?) and sign up for membership on the spot.
