The United Way of Norman received 224 blankets from With a Purpose on Monday, December 1 in relation to sales of With a Purpose's Oklahoma Sooners Blanket for a Blanket. Over the next two days, they distributed all 224 blankets to Food and Shelter Inc., The Salvation Army of Norman, and Sanctuary House.
Renee O'Leary, Director of Community Impact for The United Way of Norman noted that the blankets came at an ideal time with below freezing temperatures beginning to affect the area. Renee not only brought donation blankets to each organization, she also had the privilege of distributing them to some of the clients. She remarked, "One client liked that it was small enough to fit in her suitcase. Another lady said she was glad it matched her scarf so she could put it over her legs."
