Blanket Drive for the Homeless
Elkhart Morning Rotary is teaming up with Michiana 5 for the Homeless to conduct a blanket drive.  Michiana 5 for the Homeless is a 501(c)3 charity located in South Bend.  They provide assistance to the homeless by giving them personal care items, blankets, clothing, etc.  We will be collecting new and gently used blankets in early September which will be distributed by Michiana 5 for the Homeless.  The charity started when the founder witnessed some homeless men in Chicago sleeping without blankets on a night in late October.  Two weeks later he came back to the area and passed out 25 new blankets he had purchased.  That activity continued throughout the course of the winter.
