Mission Blankets Update
Karen Antos, Nancy Hebert, and Liz Michael write in our latest Church bulletin:
We want to thank all of you who helped make Mission Blankets so productive last year, including the Church Office. With your donations of money, blankets, overseas contact info and time, we were able to reach a record amount of children living in group homes.
And we are off to a great start for this current year, with plenty of blankets already on hand!! One man alone from our church generously donated 36 blankets. We want to express our heartfelt appreciation to every one of you who made contributions over the holidays that catapulted us into the New Year.
The Hamogelo Charity which oversees five Children’s Homes in Greece will be our main focus. A member of our church recommended this group to us and we are in touch with them.
They are eager to receive these gifts for all their children. We are busy sewing the personalized trims onto each blanket. By March we will start a staggered series of shipments to Greece.
What we can use the most right now is funds for shipping. Any amount, great or small is appreciated. It all adds up!! Make checks out to Holy Trinity Church and mark “Mission Blankets” in the memo line. An average box containing 8 blankets costs $90 to send overseas. It’s not the cheapest way, but we are assured that the items get delivered to the orphanage door.
You are a wonderful group of people. It is most rewarding to work with all of you.
With love and appreciation,
Karen Antos, Nancy Hebert & Liz Michael
