Gateway Rescue Mission, located in Jackson, Mississippi received 870 donation blankets from With A Purpose's Mississippi "Ole Miss" Blanket For A Blanket line and Mississippi State Blanket For A Blanket line. For each collegiate blanket purchased, a non-branded blanket is given to a person in need. By partnering with nonprofits across the country, blankets are donated locally to veterans, homeless and disaster relief organizations.
Gateway Rescue Mission was created to serve the homeless in Jackson's community. Providing food and shelter for those living without is how volunteers at the shelter impact the needy. Counseling and rehabilitation are offered for those struggling with addiction as well. Gateway Rescue Mission is a place where people can come to meet their basic needs, but more importantly, to get help and guidance to transform their lives.
Stay tuned for more Blanket Drop Stories this Summer!
