ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – The company Twill, founded by Albany’s Zachary Halloran, has provided thousands of blankets to hospitals, shelters, and various groups.
The donations have helped people who need comfort the most. When you buy a blanket from Twill, the company will donate one, where you choose, from its website.
The idea for Twill grew out of his family’s desire to help his brother, who struggled with mental illness.
“My mother always told me, where there’s a will, there is a way,” Zach said. “I realized where there’s a twill there’s a way.”
Despite the hardships, his brother grew stronger and resilient.
“It was really exhausting and a sad experience, but it really lead into a beautiful company,” Zach said. “It absolutely feels amazing to give back in the very city that I grew up in.”
