Nelva and Tom serve the United Methodist Churches in Dunlap and Dow City Iowa. Recently, they brought a carload of items from their churches-over 172 pounds of handmade quilts and fleece blankets. What is really special about this is the whole town helped. Fabric was donated, squares cut, designs pieced, and some sewed and quilted. All this was a gift that will give comfort and hope to those in need. The quilts will be given to a homeless family, a hurting veteran or a baby. These blankets will also show that others care and compassion can come in many sizes and ways. Thank you to Dunlap and Dow City UMC for giving of themselves to provide a special gift for those in need.
These generous servers also collected hundreds of pounds of items from linens to car seats. How wonderful to have a community come together to make a difference in the lives of the hungry and homeless. Would you like to make a difference too? Please contact me and I will help you change lives. It just took one phone call from Nelva to make a big difference in her community and lives at Open Door Mission and Lydia House.
