Blankets across the world are used for warmth, as shelters, backpacks, and many other ways. Over 2,000 were sent to disaster areas in the U.S. last year. Each blanket is $10. Last year, we sent enough money to UMCOR to purchase 87 ½ blankets. Let's see if we can hit 100 blankets this year. There is a special giving envelope for blankets in the pew holder or use a regular giving envelop and write blankets on it. SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS
