First Lady to continue "Blankets with a Blessing"

Alabama's First Lady Dianne Bentley will continue the "Blankets with a Blessing" initiative that provides new quilts and blankets to homeless and displaced families during the holidays.

"Blankets with a Blessing" has provided thousands of blankets since the initiative began in 2004.

Starting November 3 and running through November 15, new quilts and blankets will be collected from businesses and citizens across the state and distributed during the winter months to homeless families and those temporarily displaced by the April tornadoes. 

An avid quilter herself, Mrs. Bentley will donate a handmade blanket to the cause. 

"As we approach the cold winter months, it is important that we remember those who have lost their homes, or have no permanent place to call home. In the days after the tornado outbreak in April, we saw Alabamians unite to help neighbors in need," said Mrs. Bentley. "As we approach the holiday season let us continue to help each other with warm blankets during the cold months." 

New blankets and quilts can be mailed or dropped off at the Alabama's Governor Mansion Gift Shop in care of Heather Hannah, 30 Finley Avenue, Montgomery, AL 36104.
