April 24 – Blanket Sunday

The Witness Commission will be collecting an offering for Blanket Sunday. Church World Service distributes blankets to people without homes in the United States and throughout the world. $10.00 provides one blanket, $50.00 gives blankets to an entire family, $250.00 stocks shelves in a shelter with blankets before wintry lows hit. The heavy woolen blankets are water-resistant and flame-retardant. They are extremely durable, warm and great for frigid temperatures or other extreme weather conditions. The lightweight blankets are appropriate for warmer climates, these fleece blankets are water repellant, durable, warm and soft. These blankets keep families covered without adding bulk. You can show God’s love and provided hope to your neighbors by making a donation. Give cash, by check payable to Barren Ridge Church of the Brethren and one check will be sent to Church World Service or give safely online at cwsblankets.org/donate.
