Blanket Drive 2011

Thanks For Your Support!!!

We have had an outpouring of support from churches, citizens, and businesses donating blankets to serve homeless people. We have given out 800 blankets so far to people who sleep outside and those living in the emergency shelters in Cleveland. A special thanks to the Diocese of Cleveland St. Vincent Depaul Society for purchasing 300 blankets and delivering them to us yesterday. This is going to be a huge help to the shelters and the outreach teams in Cleveland. Thanks to everyone who have helped out. We will be collecting blankets through March 2011. If you have 35 blankets or more collected, we can come out and pick them up. If you can only donate blankets in the evening, there are two shelters that can accept your donation. Call NEOCH for more details 216/432-0540.

Also, remember that InterAct Cleveland is collecting other items for the 2011 Stand Down. They are collecting winter clothing and hygiene items for the January 30 and February 18 Stand Down.
