Description
Giving Tuesday (November 27) we'll blanket The Carpenter's House with love & warmth. Our goal is to collect 1,000 blankets for our guests by Giving Tuesday. Organizations, churches, school groups, and even individuals hosting a blanket drive will help us reach this goal. Collected blankets need to be large enough to cover an adult body (twin/full size), in new or used good condition, and able to provide a layer of warmth to someone sleeping outside. Will you host a drive and cover us with blankets November 27?

Room in the Inn-Memphis networks with local faith communities to provide shelter through congregations for people experiencing homelessness. Though we have nearly 50 congregations participating throughout the season, there are many nights when we still do not have enough space to shelter all of our guests. When someone is unable to receive a space, they often ask for a blanket to add a layer of warmth for the night. Help us reach our goal of 1,000 blankets by hosting a blanket drive and delivering your collection to The Carpenter's House November 27, Giving Tuesday.
