Sharing Compassion and Hope.
Mary Catherine has worked for CWS for 20 years. As a mother of two, she fondly remembers wrapping her children in a cozy, warm blanket and seeing them hold their favorite blanket close to their face—creating a sense of security.
"When you give a CWS blanket,
you are giving a tangible sign of compassion and hope."

The Warm Miracle of Love.
This event, which is blessed with abundant meals and supplies to distribute to guests, recently received another gift: CWS Blankets and Hygiene Kits. Pastor Gini, who helped organize the event, explained, “these are the kind of blankets that people carry with them. They pack them up in their roller suitcase or their backpacks. They take them with them all day long and they use them that night and the next night because they become a permanent belonging.”
