Behind the Scenes The Homeless Alliance Christmas Party - 350 Blankets

Enjoy these pictures from the 350 donation blankets that The Homeless Alliance of OKC distributed at their day shelter's Christmas Party. The day shelter provides food, safety, and warmth to more than 250 of the 1400 homeless people in OKC each day. The Homeless Alliance is working to end homelessness in OKC through the day shelter, housing programs, and the Westtown Homeless Resource Campus, a modern one-stop shop with 30 agencies onsite. They pioneer education and research initiatives focused on homelessness and facilitate homelessness-focused collaboration between faith, government, and nonprofit entities.

The blankets were all provided in connection with 1 for 1 purchases of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State With a Purpose blankets.
