Please Help Us Blanket Orange County!

Chapel Hill, NC (12-9-17) — It’s cold and wet – the kind of cold that chills to the bone.

Blanket Orange County has collected 45  blankets to assist Orange County residents who need help staying warm.

155 more are needed by December 17.

New or gently used blankets are accepted.  Preference is for single/twin size blankets.

Drop Off Locations include:
– Chapel Hill-Carrboro Chamber of Commerce– 104 S. Estes Drive
– Chapel Hill – Carrboro YMCA – 980 MLK Jr Boulevard
UNC Wellness Center – 100 Sprunt Street
WCHL – University Place on Estes Drive (near the City Kitchen entrance)

Since the start of Blanket Orange County in 2004,  Blanket Orange County has collected and distributed a total of 3,205 blankets.

Kristin Lavergne, from the Inter-Faith Council for Social Services says:
The Inter-Faith Council (IFC) has come to rely on Blanket Orange County as our primary partner in providing blankets to both sheltered and     unsheltered people living in Orange County. Our limited budget for items like blankets would never stretch far enough to meet the need without this invaluable project.

We start getting requests for blankets as soon as the first few days of cold weather descend upon the area. Not only do we distribute the blankets we receive from Blanket Orange County to our clients and residents, but we also share with some of the other organizations working with populations who are at risk.

Your gift of a warm blanket to Blanket Orange County is greatly appreciated. When the weather turns cold outside and you are warm in your bed at the end of the day, you can feel good knowing you helped make sure your neighbors were warm as well.
