Blanket Drive for Room In the Inn Help us collect 1,000 blankets to share with our guests this winter. - Bring Your Own Blankets (gently used, good condition)!
REMEMBER: All blankets need to be in clean, good condition, large enough to cover an entire adult body (twin/full size), and warm! Due to severe limits of safe, free shelter in Memphis, many of our guests sleep outside when we run out of space for the night. A good, dry blanket provides at least one more layer of warmth on a cold night. We will take our collection to The Carpenter's House on November 27.
