Well done! You guys came through quick, and with the combination of blankets and money donations, we’ve collected about 150 blankets total!
Our goal was to collect 100 full-size blankets within two weeks to donate to an emergency shelter for families experiencing homelessness. Each family member who comes to the shelter is provided with a blanket, and recently these have been in very short supply. One of our on-site partners, Catholic Charities Housing Stability Division, is also involved with there.
The shelter is just down the road from us, and as we’ve partnered with them several times in the past, we were more than happy to partner with them again.
Thank you for helping to care for our neighborhood families experiencing homelessness!
