Tru-Spec Donates Wool Blankets To Warm Homeless Hearts

November 10, 2010  | 

Tru-Spec by Atlanco has partnered with nonprofit Feeding the Need Globally Inc. to launch the Warming Homeless Hearts fund-raiser throughout the greater Atlanta and Memphis, Tenn., areas.

Wool-blend blankets will be given to the homeless in the Atlanta area via MUST ministries, Nicholas House, Cross Roads, Catholic Mission, Action Ministry and in the Memphis area via Manna House and the Memphis Family Shelter.

The primary goal is to supply blankets to as many organizations working with the homeless as the donations and supplies can support. Atlanco will be donating the initial 5,000 blankets to Feeding the Need Globally, which will request donations of $5 per blanket.

Net proceeds will benefit C.O.P.S. (Concerns of Police Survivors) and the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.

"Atlanco is proud to be a part of the Warming Homeless Hearts fund-raiser and to be able to bring much needed warmth with a blanket to someone this holiday season," according to Carl Zaglin, Atlanco president. "We are proud that the proceeds will benefit these two great organizations, which make such a vital impact in the communities in which we all live."

Feeding the Need Globally Inc. is a nonprofit organization that currently focuses on the physical and mental health of people all over the world.
