The May special offering, Blankets+, will go to Church World Service to support their many important programs. For over 60 years, CWS has worked in partnership with local communities to identify their needs and access the resources they need to build the foundation for a more viable future, including: blankets, tents, food and other emergency supplies in the wake of a disaster; tools and seeds for refugees returning home to replant their fields; wells for families living in drought prone areas to provide clean, safe water to drink and to irrigate crops and gardens; and literacy training and microcredit for women struggling to realize their potential. You are the plus in Blankets+!
This offering will be officially received on May 11, and, as with all our special offerings, you can give at any time.
Thanks to your generosity, the April special offering will split $615 between the Conference and the Region to extend their ministries.
