Community Service


Blanket for the Homeless

For the August 2016 meeting, the HRAPA has chosen VSPC charity Blankets for the Homeless for our community service,

Mariah Smith was born and abandoned on Christmas Eve 21 years ago, from Homeless to Helper Mariah is the founder of a rapidly growing Homeless ministry. Mariah started this organization in October 2011 when she was 17 and has already distributed over 110,000 blankets and lunches to people living on the streets, as well as coats, hats, gloves, clothes, shoes, backpacks, tents, toiletries and anything else they need she always finds a way to get it for them. Mariah has numerous speaking engagements at schools, businesses, organizations, and every Sunday she speaks at a different church encouraging THOUSANDS to join her on her mission to help as many people as she can.  Five nights a week Mariah distributes 50 blankets and lunches along with all the other desperately needed items  to people living on the streets not fortunate enough to get into shelters.

Wish List: Due to the lack of storage space, they could always use gift cards to help purchase items they need. However, they will not turn down donated blankets and items listed above.

 For more information on the Charity visit the Blankets for the Homeless website.
