Winters in Appalachia can be long and brutal, especially if your home has broken windows and isn’t well insulated.  Sandy Gunnell, leader of Sisters of Hope in Prestonsburg, Kentucky sees this scenario all the time.  While visiting vulnerable neighbors in her community to distribute CWS Blankets and other material items, she realized how cold their homes were in the winter.

The members of the Burchett family had an idea to make their house a little warmer.  They hung the thick wool blankets donated to them three years ago in front of their broken windows, "to keep the heat in and the cold wind out," explained Sandy.  She knows that for many families, a CWS Blanket is an important barrier separating them from the cold.  "Every year the CWS Blanket is the only thing they have to keep them warm," said Sandy.

Sandy recently provided the Burchett family with additional blankets to use in the various rooms of their house. "They are so appreciative of everything we have given them. And they go out of their way to tell you how much these blankets mean to them," she says.

God has blessed us with so much, and we have much to share.  Share this love by providing CWS Blankets to those in need.  Each blanket costs only $10, but these blankets can be a vital resource for someone needing a little support, warmth, and encouragement.
