Blanket Donation Appeal
Thanks to the members who have already brought blankets for this outreach effort. We also appreciate that a number of blankets remained from the 2017 outreach for hurricane victims led by Mission II. All blankets received have been delivered to the Salvation Army. Given the numbers of people downtown on a very cold Wednesday in only a blanket or no outerwear at all, the need continues and we are committed to doing more. Please drop off your blankets for this Women’s Ministry project in the office by February 21st (Wednesday). We are already past our goal!! (And it’s still cold.)
