“They are also filled with abundant joy, which has overflowed in rich generosity.”
— 2 Corinthians 8:2
“Blankets show more than just their physical use. Blankets show caring and show love.”
— JULIANNE CHRISTY, NORA’S GRANDMOTHER
When she was just four years old, Nora McNiff decided to help her grandmother with their church’s Blanket Sunday. Now eight, Nora is leading the Blanket Sunday at that church in Marysville, Michigan.
She has also seen CWS Blankets being distributed to people in need through Neighbor to Neighbor in Berrien Springs, Michigan. When we asked Nora how she thought people feel after receiving a warm blanket, she said, “They will feel comforted and happy and joyful.”
God has blessed us with so much, and we have much to share. Generous congregations like Nora’s and yours share thousands of CWS Blankets with neighbors in need every year, spreading that warmth, happiness and joy.
Don’t just take our word for it. “I want to say thank you to all of the churches that have a Blanket Sunday. I saw how they use the blankets and it’s awesome,” says Nora.
Keep being awesome this spring, and help CWS blanket the world with love! Join us by hosting a Blankets Offering in honor of Mother's Day, this spring.
