GOAL: 250/500 — FINAL: 350/700!
This is our 3rd year doing our Gift of Warmth Blanket Drive. We would like to thank all of our amazing customers, family, and friends for helping us to meet our goal this year and to surpass last year’s goal!
We were able to collect 350 blankets and Shaw’s matched that number so we delivered a total of 700 blankets to the Lemoore Christian Aid. All the blankets will be distributed to homeless families, or families in need in our community. The blankets range from king size comforters to baby blankets. There will be a lot of warm and happy people enjoying these blankets.
A special thank you goes out to all the kids, teachers, staff and parents from Island Union School. Without their help we would not have surpassed our goal from last year.
