BLANKET SUNDAY – MAY 1: Donate $5.00 to provide a warm blanket that can be used as a tent, a tote, shade, room divider, etc. through Church World Service (CWS) on the First Sunday in May and November. 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.
