We’re thrilled to announce we’re beginning our 4th annual Blanket Drive to benefit Corpus Christi and Interfaith Sanctuary. We are currently seeking donations of new or gently used blankets and twin-sized bedding. Additionally, essential items such as travel-size toiletries, hand sanitizer, coffee and non-dairy creamer are also requested.
Donations are being accepted now through December 19, 2014 and can be dropped off during business hours (8am – 5pm, Monday – Friday) at Foerstel Design (249 S. 16th St.).
“This year we had Adams Elementary and the Eagle High Cheerleaders contact us because they want to participate in the drive.” said project manager Laura Martin, “It was great they collected over 30 blankets and sheets – it really helped jump start the donations this year.”
We’d also like to invite you to the Distribution of the Blankets on December 20th at 7pm. The event will take place at the Homeless Memorial Service at Corpus Christi House (525 S. Americana Blvd.). It’s a special event to remember and honor those who died while homeless, formerly homeless, or were a homeless advocate.
