Blanket Sunday is March 15
Our Annual Blanket Sunday Offering, collected for Church World Service will be received this Sunday, March 15. Remembering how cold this winter has been, please come prepared to give generously to help needy families around the world.
Some 8,000 congregations and groups across the U.S. hold CWS Blankets events, providing funds to help people in need around the world.
For over 60 years, CWS has worked in partnership with local communities to identify their needs and access the resources they need to build the foundation for a more viable future, including:
-Blankets, tents, food and other emergency supplies in the wake of a disaster
-Tools and seeds for refugees returning home to replant their fields
-Wells for families living in drought prone areas to provide clean, safe water to drink and to irrigate crops and gardens
-Literacy training and microcredit for women struggling to realize their potential.
