Blanket Donation Offers Comfort to Homeless Veterans!

Above & Beyond: Veteran volunteers renovating basement for homeless vets

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Homeless veterans staying at Liberation Family Services will have a new sense of comfort. Today the non-profit From the Heart dropped off 35 blankets hand-knitted by volunteers across Virginia.

“They offer emotional therapy. They’re red, white and blue, which is patriotic,” Liberation Family Services CEO Jay Patrick says about the blankets. “It is symbolic of their service and reminding them of the time they served our country.”

“It’s such a little thing,” From the Heart Founder Lois Moore says about her group’s donation. “We can’t begin to give back what they’ve given to us. So this is just so small.”

 

 

From our humble beginnings in a Starbucks coffee shop 12 years ago, to our 1100+ member base today, the volunteer organization From the Heart continues its charitable mission.

From the Heart is involved in numerous projects, from making chemo hats for local cancer centers, preemie baby hats for the tiniest of our recipients, sleeping bags and warm mitten sets for the homeless in the Richmond community.

Heart volunteers are constantly finding new opportunities to help, and encourage anyone who knows of an unmet need in the community to please bring it to our attention.
