First, a big thank you to all who donated clothing and blankets to the UMW Warming Ministry, supporting our friends at Olivet UMC. We have made two deliveries to date which have provided over 500 items including blankets, coats, scarves, hats, gloves and boots. Olivet has received these with great joy, gratitude, and amazement at both the number and quality of our donations. There were many hand-knit scarves, hats, and mittens, in addition to over 30 hand-tied fleece blankets.
Speaking of blankets, despite the many donated blankets and fleece blankets made by UMW, there is an ongoing need for more blankets. So, we are announcing another Craft Event to be held on Monday, December 17 at 2:30 p.m., in the Fireside Room and Narthex. We will be tying and finishing fleece blankets. Thanks to several generous cash donations, we were able to buy fleece to make 10+ blankets. Please bring any fleece blanket kits you may have and we will help get them done quickly. Everyone is invited to attend, all ages and genders! Holiday snacks and beverages will be provided. Come have a fun afternoon and create warm, comforting blankets for the Olivet community.
