Think about it…don’t you love going to bed on a cold night to snuggle under warm blankets? I love snuggling under blankets and am blessed to have quite few (gifts from those that know my guilty pleasure). At Open Door Mission we can always use blankets, quilts and sleeping bags in the winter months. When you have over 800+ guests a night extra blankets are a blessing. At the Timberlake Outreach Center we help provide blankets to several thousand that come through the doors looking for help.
We cannot keep people warm without your help. Please consider donating those “extra” blankets that you or your family no longer uses. You might want to have a Blanket Drive at your church or business to collect blankets, quilts and even sleeping bags. Youth groups can make the “tied fleece blankets”, we can use all sizes. You will not only be giving warmth, you will be giving hope and love.
