The Compassionate Clothing Closet is collecting new or gently used blankets during the month of October, for distribution in November, as winter approaches. Many households do not have enough blankets to keep everyone warm, and some of them may not be able to afford to have the heat turned on. Blankets may be brought to the church office, or taken directly to the CCC, 211 N. Central St. on Mondays from 11 to 2 or Tuesdays from 1 to 3.
