Riley passionately believes that everyone deserves to feel safe, supported, and cared for. That’s why we teamed up with two New York City poverty fighting organizations for Blanket the City.
Generous in Stitch & Spirit
For every blanket, throw, or comforter purchased on RileyHome.com in 2019, a new blanket is donated to a family in need at one of 11 Win shelters throughout New York City. All Riley blankets – including throws, coverlets, comforters, and Riley Jr. blankets – qualify for this initiative.
We’re in This Together
Riley collaborated with Robin Hood to identify Win – New York City’s largest provider of shelter and services for homeless women and families — as the ideal beneficiary for Blanket the City™.
Make it Count
Win is the largest provider of shelter and services for homeless women and families in New York City, providing shelter and services to nearly 10% of the city’s homeless population. In the past year, more than 9,800 people have called Win their home.
Warmth for All
Riley is launching in New York City and plans to expand Blanket the City™ both geographically as well as through additional initiatives, activities and events to positively impact many more families in need.
Founded in 1988, Robin Hood finds, fuels, and creates the most impactful and scalable solutions lifting families out of poverty in New York City, with models that can work across the country.

“Every night, 1,600 families sleep at a Win shelter. Our families are so grateful to have Riley Home blankets to decorate their rooms, and to one day bring to their own apartments.”
