Blanket Drive Continues

Diane (pictured here) participated in the Brown's Blanket drive in December.  Thanks to the Browns for donating the tickets to assist with the 2012 Blanket Drive.   We collected over 500 blankets in one week.  We are still working on collecting blankets.  Thanks to Shaker Heights Congregational Church for the van load of blankets they delivered this week.   We will be collecting blankets through March 2013. 

Some of the other items we collect include bus tickets, back packs, new socks, towels, and new underwear.   We also work with Handson Northeast Ohio to collect items for the upcoming Homeless Stand Down.  We help to distribute winter items at the Stand Down (gloves, hats, boots, etc.).  We are willing to pick up for donations of 35 or more blankets.  We are open 9 to 4 every week day for drop off of any of the above items. 

We distribute all the items collected to people who stay outside or in one of the overflow shelters in the community.   Please call if you have questions 216-432-0540.
