These blankets are primarily intended for use as a comfort aid to children involved in domestic violence incidents, vehicle accidents or other traumatic events. They may also be useful when dealing with vulnerable adults, such as people with Alzheimer's and dementia, who require police assistance.

Every blanket is handmade by the girls and come in an array of colors and patterns. In September, Washington County Sheriff Douglas Mullendore was presented with 30 blankets. The remainder will be delivered in two more batches by the end of 2011.
The girls estimate their total work time to be in excess of 60 hours when the last blanket is completed.
This project will also serve as part of their advancement requirement toward their Silver Award, which is the highest award a Cadet Girl Scout can receive.
