POMEROY – The “Share a Blanket,” project started by June and Manning Kloes of Middleport in the midst of a very cold winter has taken on a life of its own.
Earlier this month, after giving out over 400 blankets donated by generous Meigs Countians, the Kloes thought the mission project was over. But then more blankets started to come in and they now feel that it will be a continuing project from one cold winter to the next.
The couple credit the success of the “Share a Blanket” project to those caring residents who have not only donated blankets but helped get them to the people in need.
Keeping people warm on cold winter days seems to inspire a spirit of generosity in many, and for that, the Kloes thank the Lord for a county that is so caring.
