Covering the World with the Love of Jesus the Christ
CWS BLANKET PROJECT
For decades, the First UM Church of San Gabriel has been raising funds to help the "lost, lonely and dispossessed.
It is especially important to provide warmth in Winter and times when our attention may be focused elsewhere.
We have found that the CWS Blanket Project is one the best ways to do that. We're also working with the L.A. County Homeless Agency and their "blankets, sleeping bags, quilts and socks (all washed and cleaned) cold weather effort.
You are invited to join us in this effort of Unconditional Love.
Our Mission Committee hopes that you will help this
unique Mission Project to give warmth and life.

Watch for our Annual
"CWS Blanket" Sunday
Help the Displaced and Homeless:
Each year we have a Blanket Sunday to gather "lightly used" blankets and sleeping bags for those vulnerable and facing the cold alone.
We invite you to come and talk to us about the gift of warmth and our goal in raising funds for this very worthwhile service outreach.
We hope you can join us not only in January, but at any time to donate to this very worthwhile cause!
is Making a Difference
We are changing lives both in the way they live and in the way they love. We are showing that the unconditional love of Jesus the Messiah is real and transformative in our lives.
By partnering with Church World Service (CWS) we are helping individuals and families around the world recover from displacement and disasters.
Like the miracle of the loaves and fish, our gifts to CWS Blankets multiply are they are joined by the contributions of other caring congregations.
Together we offer a harvest of caring for those in need.
Here is a page filled with videos and stories of people and places that have been helped by this Blanket project.
