Help us wrap our neighbors in love

Published 10:11 am Thursday, October 15, 2009

The Dressing Room, operated by Federated Charities, is seeking donations of new and clean, gently used blankets.

As the weather turns cold and we get out our “Snuggies,” I hope you will remember your neighbors who may not have adequate heat for their homes.

Blankets are collected and distributed for free to families in need through The Dressing Room.

The Dressing Room is a community clothing closet that helps struggling families with free clothing. Due to increased energy costs, many of these families are facing the possibility of not having heat in their homes this winter and blankets may be all the warmth they have.

If you wish to make a donation please deliver to The Dressing Room at 328 19th Street, Ashland, KY.

If you wish to donate money, please send your check to The Dressing Room, P. O. Box 611, Ashland, KY 41105-0611 and we will purchase blankets for the program.

Since the inception of the “Blanket Blitz,” we have distributed over 1,000 blankets to people in the Ashland/Ironton area.

Our services are free because you care about your friends and neighbors, thank you for continued donations.

We are also accepting coats, socks, hats, gloves and scarves for distribution.

Please call (606) 324-5400 if you have any questions.

Lucy D. Davis, Executive Director, Federated Charities
