When difficult times happen, a kind and loving response can make all the difference. That’s why the CWS Blankets program was created—to give a kind, loving and tangible response to someone facing a difficult time, reminding them that they are not alone.

Through the generosity of CWS partner organizations, congregations and individual supporters, our most vulnerable neighbors around the world can feel safe and keep warm with fresh linens and clean sleeping quarters.

When our neighbors are in need, even $10 for a single blanket goes a long way.

“To all the volunteers, the donors of Church World Service: God bless you! You are touching the hearts of people you will never meet. You are bringing hope to people that are hopeless and bringing hope to people that feel so disenfranchised. God bless you, God keep you! Keep doing what you are doing because you are making a difference.”Shirlyn Thomas, co-pastor at God’s Kingdom and Restoration Ministries in Galveston, TX
“First of all, thank you for giving. There are so many lives that you don’t know, and their lives have been transformed because of your giving. This life is not for ourselves. It’s about giving to others. We are truly grateful that you are trusting us to do the right thing, and let me tell you, we are doing the right thing.” Elizabeth Ozo-Onyali Project Hope Charities in Jamaica, New York

"But they are also filled with abundant joy, which has overflowed in rich generosity." ~ 2 Corinthians 8:2-4
