Winter Blankets for the Homeless
Organized by: Debbie Roth
Each year the homeless of our area suffer from the effects of either our harsh or at times mild winters. This applies to those that live on the streets, or the woods or in cars. For those that live on the streets or in the woods, other elements hamper their ability to stay warm too; rain, wind, snow and ice. This Homeland Disciples Ministry program will purchase emergency blankets that will be distributed to the 200 or so homeless we serve. The blankets we will purchase are a great wool blankets and are manufactured for emergency use in moderate climates. They are made of a 30%/ 70% blend of wool and synthetic fabric providing warmth to those who are cold.
Homeland Disciples is a 501(c)3 not for profit charity serving the homeless and indigent in the Hamptons Roads area of South East Virginia. All donations are tax deductible.
