There is nothing we like better than our nice warm bed and blankets this time of year with all of the cold weather we have been having. We think about our PADS guests, who come into our church for warmth, food and a pad to sleep on that has sheets, a pillow, and a blanket.
When disaster strikes or there are refugees anywhere in the world, people find themselves and their families out in the cold, or getting soaked by rain, or out in the blazing sun and have no shelter.
This is the statement from Church World Service (CWS):
“In 2017 CWS distributed thousands of blankets around the world. Your congregation can be part of an even greater response in 2018. You will reach families fleeing their homes, recovering from disaster and more.”
Elmhurst Presbyterian Church monetary donations, 10.00 per blanket, will bring protection, comfort, security, and a lot of love.
Our donations will be collected on Blanket Sunday, February 18th.
