February 12th is Church World Service Blanket and Tool Sunday. Franklin Federated Church will be taking a special offering to support this amazing mission project that provides blankets and tools across the United States and the world.
From Church World Service:
Help people around the world recover from disasters and get a fresh start.
Someone like Karen, a senior citizen in Michigan whose home was ooded in 2014. Or Nerline, a mother of four in Haiti, who lived in a tent for several years after the 2010 earthquake destroyed her house.
When you partner with us, through the CWS Blankets program, you are helping our neighbors in need recover from disaster, giving them hope and the tools they need for lasting change.
You are providing necessities and cleanup supplies to Karen and others impact- ed by stateside disasters, working with the community to rebuild their lives. You are coming alongside Nerline and others in Haiti, to construct a new home and accompany them on the long road to recovery.
You also make it possible to be prepared for whatever may come in the future so we are ready to act. Join us.
