Spread The Warmth

Posted: Updated:

     Do you have a blanket or two in your closet that you hardly ever use? Most of us do. However there are hundreds of people in Green Country who don't have a blanket to keep them warm at night, and many of them are children. It's only a matter of time when the frigid temperatures of winter move in. So now is the time for you to help me spread the warmth.

     Frank's Spread The Warmth is a brand new program at Tulsa's Channel 8. It's a drive to provide blankets for our area homeless shelters. We are currently collecting new and gently used blankets, comforters and quilts for those in need. Simply bring them to your local LaMode Cleaners. LaMode Cleaners will clean the blankets to distribute to the area homeless shelters or any organization in need.

     Unfortunately there is a huge need for blankets in our area. No child or adult should have to go to sleep at night without a blanket to help them feel warm and secure. Please help me help them by clearing out some space in your closet and spread the warmth at the same time.

     Thank you, Frank
