Blankets for children

Simple idea. We've made & donated fleece blankets to children in foster care system. There are currently 2000-2300 children housed without parents at our southern borders. Problem is likely to get worse before getting better. So say, 5000 kids. Most fleece fabric needs no preparation beyond measuring & cutting to size. 100s of images on them; solid colors to animal prints to cartoon animals to superheroes. I would volunteer to help start off the organizing & fundraising for fabric, organize crafters. Can goods like this be donated directly to the children who need them? Is DHS able to accept goods of this nature? The blanket would BELONG to the child; taken with them as a piece of continuity & comfort as they are moved/allocated/reunited/fostered.
