Location: MAPS—we will have a bright blue and green poster set up at two different locations. Please drop the bags off where these posters are located. One will be in the staff lounge and the other will be by the main entrance. Please do NOT bring blankets until the collection day.

Please bring clean (or new) blankets in garbage bags labeled with the number of items. 

About: Living in an area like Redmond, we oftentimes don’t realize how many people spend their nights without basic amenities such as food and shelter; hundreds of individuals spend the night huddled under benches in public parks or at the local library. As a result, Redmond United Methodist Church has set up an Emergency Homeless Shelter. These provide short-term relief for the homeless and low-income during the night. Usually there is a maximum stay of 3 months or less and clients are asked to leave during the day. Many of the individuals who live here are women and children. As Winter quickly approaches, this shelter is in desperate need of blankets/comforters for its residents to use.

The winning class gets a pizza party!
