Blankets for the BRRG

blanket project poster

At a time when many people are focused on giving thanks for the bounty in their lives, others are feeling the pain of need.  As the leaves turn brilliant colors to announce fall, the nights are getting colder letting us know that winter is not far behind.  Winter is a devastating reality for the homeless. This causes fear and anxiety for most of the people who have to sleep outdoors. The face the risk of dehydration, frostbite and hypothermia.  For a homeless person, winter is no wonderland.

Pittsburgh has been called one of America’s most livable cities, but this does not apply to everyone.  This past January on a night so cold that you couldn’t feel your toes, a team from the Community Human Services counted 783 homeless people on the streets, alleys and along the river in temperatures below zero.

By providing these people with the tools necessary to survive through the winter months we can prevent serious injury or even death.  Your donation will greatly help to protect those outdoors in frigid weather.  

At the very least, everyone deserves to be safe from the elements.  Please help us make this happen by clicking the button below and making a donation.  100% of your contribution goes towards the purchase of a blanket, coat or hoodie for a homeless person in need.  You can also make arrangements with the church to drop off your donated items.

While this is a time to gather with family and friends and be grateful for our blessings, we hope that you will find it in your heart to help those who are less fortunate.

Thank you and God Bless!
