Overview: Olivet’s PRSSA hosted a campus-wide blanket drive in the Fall 2015 semester. They partnered with an on-campus ministry, Save Our Streets, who’s mission is to help the homeless in our community.
Results: Through this event, we were able to collect 157 blankets to donate to Gift of God Street Church in Kankakee County before the winter season started. This organization is committed to helping the homeless in our community and works with Save Our Streets ministry on a regular basis.
Our Advertisement: Help Us keep Kankakee County warm this winter by donating a blanket to help those who are in need. We all know that during the winter it get fairly chilly where we live, and some people are struggling in our area just to find shelter or stay warm.
So, what can you do to help? Go home or go to the store and bring back a blanket to donate. Olivet’s PRSSA has partnered with Save Our Streets to make this wonderful event become a reality. You can donate any new or gently used blanket from November 30th-December 11th to Gift of God Street Church in Kankakee, and the blankets will be dispersed from there.
There will be drop-off boxes in the Communications Building and every housing complex. If there are any questions regarding this, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
