The end of May is upon us which means we are wrapping up our Blanket Sunday project. If you requested CWS Blanket Sunday cards be sent to your recipient, they went out earlier this week. There is still time if you would like to make a donation or honor someone special in your life. Just send a check or electronic payment with a note or email of who is to be honored. As we conclude this month of charitable contributions, I will share with you some of the facts from CWS that reflect where the funds and supplies go.
