For many, a blanket might not seem that important.
But for those sleeping rough or facing financial stress, a warm blanket can go a long way.
With the primary goal of supporting communities, Freemasonry Tasmania have stepped-up to ensure more than a thousand people are kept a little bit warmer.
The organisation have donated 1002 wool-mixed blankets to the Salvation Army, with 340 distributed in Launcsteston, 340 in Hobart and the remainder in the state's North West.
Grand master John Slore said charitable work remained a primary focus for the organisation.
"We are not a secret society, as many believe," he said.
"Our ethos has always been based on helping those in the community.
"Assisting our fellow man, in this day and age, we want to make the most of it."

Salvation Army social operations manager Anita Reeve said the blankets were greatly appreciated.
"This [donation] is integral to what we are a part of, through our Doorways program offering emergency relief. There are also those who are at-risk of homelessness," she said.
"Having access to good quality blankets like this - for many people it will make a huge difference.
"This is a big part of our 'community together' approach."
While you're with us, the community is raising funds for four local charities as part of The Examiner's Winter Relief Appeal. Can you help?
