Spring Service Project 2014: Blankets for the Homeless

He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the Lord… (Proverbs 19:17)

On April 9, just a few days before the start of Holy Week, the Library faculty and staff participated in their spring service project by making 50 lunches to be distributed that night by Blankets for the Homeless.

Blankets for the Homeless gives blankets, clothing, food, and other essential items to around 200 of the least of Christ’s brethren each week in the cities of Hampton Roads. To learn more this local ministry and Mariah Smith, who founded it when she was 17, watch this video featured on The 700 Club:
