BRADLEY UNIVERSITY, PEORIA, Ill. -- Bradley University students are giving comfort to those in need, literally.

Hundreds of students, faculty and staff are making blankets for children in need of comfort after Sunday's tornadoes.

Each blanket comes with a personal note of hope from the one who made it.

"I know that in natural disasters people need all the support they can get and just getting a blanket from Bradley students could make all the difference," Jennifer Faulkner, Bradley student.

The group has made more than 200 blankets so far, and plan to continue the effort tomorrow.

The blankets will be delivered next week.
