For those who may not know, each year, Foerstel holds an annual blanket and donation drive in late-November / early-December. And this year is no exception.
With the temperatures dropping to low temps at night…it reminds us of the very reason that we started this drive seven years ago.
It was a late night for a few of us leaving the office when we were walking to our cars and talking about going home to our dinners and our warm homes. That’s when we looked over to a group of people huddled under the connector trying desperately to stay warm. Then our conversation changed to going home and finding blankets from our closets to bring back for these people.
Since then, we have asked our kind, generous community to help out by just bringing in blankets. They can be gently used from your own home or new. We will distribute blankets at the Homeless Memorial Service, a special time to remember the homeless who have passed away in 2017. The service will be held at Corpus Christi, on 12/21/17.
However, if you don’t have blankets…we are also asking for other needed items such as these:
- New or Gently Used Blankets
- Twin Size Sheets
- Interlocking Foam Floor Mats for Kids
- Peanut Butter Granola Bars
- Non-Dairy Creamer
