Fleece Blankets for Honduras

87 fleece blankets ready to ship

We meet at University Baptist Church in Hattiesburg, MS. Every year a group from the church sends a team to Honduras with the Baptist Medical and Dental Mission International. We were asked to send some blankets or quilts to be given to the families after the workers reported from last year: The people came into the clinic, and the mothers would say, "Baby cold."

We decided we could furnish more by sending 2-yard serged fleece blankets, and our members have generously donated 87 for the mission team to give. The team has to ship supplies and equipment in October to have them there for use in January. In previous years we have helped with fleece and by sharing fabric which was used to teach the children the story of Joseph and his coat of many colors.
