Sacred Heart Blanket Drive: October 24th & 25th and October 31st & November 1st
Fall is upon us and it’s time to be thinking about those cooler days and frosty nights. Every Thanksgiving, Sacred Heart Community Service strives to give a blanket to each of their families. Donated blankets are one of the most popular items in their Clothes Closet. They are used to bring warmth to several children sharing the same bed, shelter for homeless men and women living outside in the rain and cold, or families trying to keep warm while living in a car.
Unfortunately, the number of families in need often exceeds the number of donated blankets. We’re calling on you to help meet the needs of as many families as possible this year. So, when you’re out shopping or running errands think about picking up a blanket or two to warm the hearts and toes of those in need. Any gently used blankets tucked away in closets at home will also be greatly appreciated by those in need of a warm night’s rest.
We will be collecting new and/or clean, gently used blankets on the weekends of October 24th & 25th and October 31st & November 1st at all Masses. Holy Spirit will store the blankets until Sacred Heart comes to collect them for the holiday distribution. Please consider giving the gift of warmth to our brothers and sisters in need.
If you have any questions, please contact Yvonne Gomez at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Linda Contarino at email@example.com.
Thank you for living your faith by sharing your generous spirit.
