I am on a mission to get blankets to the people of the MS Gulf Coast. Even if only one blanket can be sent, that is one child that will not go cold this winter, probably more since there will be multiple people sleeping in one bed.

Please send items to my sister at this time and hold off from sending more items to Mom.

If you are in the area they are welcome to stop by Mom's and check on how things are going. There will probably be several people around since there are 2 FEMA trailers set up in the 2 yards there and Mom is in her house (house next door needs serious renovations that will take place)

Only we can help the MS Gulf Coast, one day at a time, and one blanket at a time.
