Some 8000 congregations and groups across the U.S. hold Church World Service Blankets+ events, providing funds to help people in need around the world. For over 60 years, CWS has worked in partnership with local communities to identify their needs and access the resources they need to build the foundation for a more viable future, including: blankets, tents, food and other emergency supplies in the wake of a disaster; tools and seeds for refugees returning home to replant their fields; wells for families living in drought prone areas to provide clean, safe water to drink and to irrigate crops and gardens; and literacy training and microcredit for women struggling to realize their potential. Be the plus in Blankets+. Envelopes are provided for your donation. Just make your check out to “LUMC” and mark it for “CWS Blankets+.” Thanks for your compassion and generosity in your support for the Blankets+ program.
