In the midst of crisis, faith guides a loving response. That’s how the CWS Blanket program started, and that’s why your congregation's gifts mean so much this year. Through the generosity of congregations and our partners, vulnerable neighbors can keep warm with fresh linens and clean sleeping quarters.
Support CWS Blankets to respond to these neighbors' needs. You can host a Blankets Sunday in two main ways right now: 1) Host a distance-based offering using this versatile selection of downloadable materials and the donation page and 2) When it's safe, host a building-based offering by completing this material order form.

“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 Jamaica, New York
