60 Blankets Delivered to Knox Area Rescue Ministries


Through the Tennessee Volunteers Blanket for a Blanket line, With A Purpose donated 60 non branded blankets to Knox Area Rescue Ministries (aka KARM), a non profit ministry located in Knoxville, TN. Community volunteers have been serving individuals in need of food and shelter for over 55 years. Their belief is that 'rescue' is available through building 'relationships' which allows men, women and families to be 'restored' to lives of health and wholeness.


KARM's emergency and residential shelters provide housing for close to 400 people nightly. During the day, KARM offers breakfast, lunch and dinner to all those in need of food. About 1,000 meals are served each day to men, women and families. Multiple educational courses and recovery services are made available as well.

With a Purpose is proud to work alongside KARM to give support and warmth to the vulnerable souls in need of rescue in Tennessee. Overall 30,420 blankets have been donated to date through the Buy A Blanket, Give A Blanket program. Stay tuned for more Blanket Drop Stories!
