RCI would like to invite all of you to join us in participating in this year’s “Spread the Warmth” blanket drive.
Spread the warmth is an annual event sponsored by Tulsa’s KTUL News Channel 8 and La Mode Cleaners to collect blankets to donate to the homeless. Last year, Spread the Warmth collected over 4,700 blankets to distribute to Tulsans in need. This year’s goal is to collect a minimum of 5,000 blankets.
Such a simple task that so many of us can easily partake in. If you are like me, you probably have a closet full of blankets that rarely get used. This is all it takes. Grab a gently used blanket or a new one and bring it to our office here in Claremore or one of the following locations:
• Any LaMode Cleaner
• KTUL Tulsa’s Channel 8
• Mattress firm, all Tulsa locations including Broken Arrow, Owasso, and Sand Springs
• UniFirst in Broken Arrow
• Lake Country Chevrolet in Muskogee
• Volunteers of America Oklahoma (at either location in Tulsa or Muskogee)
Blankets collected will be distributed by Volunteers of America Oklahoman to places such as Family and Children’s Services, John 3:16, Emergency Infant Services, and many other great organizations that help those in need. The blanket drive ends January 31st. We ask that if you plan on bringing a blanket to our office, bring it no later than the 30th to ensure it gets dropped off in time.
