Wrap Up Louisville collects blankets for homeless

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Hundreds of University of Louisville students are teaming up with some local businesses to area homeless people some warmth and comfort.

Wrap Up Louisville held a fort building contest December 2 at the Brown and Williamson Club at Papa Johns Cardinal Stadium.  Eight teams built forts out of the blankets they collected.

"Especially during the holiday season, it just makes it a lot nicer," said Kappa Delta member and UofL junior Meghan Rouse.

In all, Wrap Up Louisville collected 2,520 blankets.
