BLANKET SUNDAY 2024
MAY 12-26
For over 75 years, Church World Service has been helping people of faith bring God’s hope and healing to people in the U.S. and around the world through the CWS Blankets program.
When difficult times happen, a kind and loving response can make all the difference.

Through the generosity of our congregation, our most vulnerable neighbors around the world can feel safe and keep warm with fresh linens and clean sleeping quarters.
Last year CWS distributed 32,785 blankets throughout the world, providing comfort and security to those who may not have a safe place to live or to sleep.

This Mother’s Day the Mission Team invites you to “Blanket the World in Love” as we once again participate in a special offering to help provide blankets to those who are facing hard times.  For $10.00, or whatever you can give, you can help give a blanket that can provide warmth and shelter, comfort and privacy, healing and hope.

Offering envelopes are on the back of the pews and on the table in the back of the sanctuary.
Please make checks out to the United Church of Milton and write “Blanket” on the memo.
Thank you for helping to bring hope to people who need a reminder that someone cares about them.   Thank you,  The Mission Team
