Browns Blanket Drive

Northeast Ohio Coalition for the Homeless Winter Blanket Drive

NEOCH, in partnership with the Cleveland Browns, are working to provide blankets to those who sleep outside or in the overflow shelters.  We do this every year with a goal of collecting and distributing 3,000 during the winter.  The Cleveland Browns are partnering with NEOCH this week to assist in the collection of blankets with a goal of 1,000 blankets this week.  Starting December 8, 2012 and while the supply of tickets last, we will give one ticket to the Cleveland Browns game vs. the Washington Redskins on December 16, 2012 for every two blankets that are donated to NEOCH before the game. 

You can drop off your blankets* at the NEOCH offices

3631 Perkins Ave. Third Floor (Push Call 32 to be let in the building).

 We will have extended hours so that you can drop off your blankets while you are downtown:

  • Saturday December 8 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. 
  • Monday to Thursday December 10-14 from 9 am-7 p.m.

All blankets are provided to people living outside or staying in the overflow shelters/churches in our community. 

Call Larry Davis at NEOCH 216-432-0540 for more information.

*new blankets or “like new” clean blankets only!
