Free blankets go to hundreds of Jackson-area needy

CITIZEN PATRIOT • SCOTT STONER Michele Mast, left, of Jackson helps fold and sort winter clothing at the fourth annual Cup of Joe and a Blanket To Go at the Jackson Interfaith Shelter.Michele Mast would give someone the boots off her feet.

She did on Saturday.

The Jackson woman swapped shoes with a man at Cup of Joe and a Blanket to Go, an annual event to help needy people in the Jackson area organized by Calvary Apostolic Church, 9009 McCain Road near Parma.

"The gentleman had come up and his shoes were missing shoelaces and his shoes were raggedy," said the Rev. Shannon Scott, pastor of the church, which holds the event in the parking lot across from the Jackson Interfaith Shelter, 414 S. Blackstone St.

So Mast agreed to a trade, giving him her new pair of boots. "She went home with those old tennis shoes with no shoelaces on them," Scott said. "It was awesome."

More than 100 people showed up for free coffee, blankets, coats, hats and stuffed animals.

Scott said the church was overwhelmed by the number of blankets donated just before the event began.

"We tried to keep track of how many blankets, but we lost track," he said.

"I'd say 300 at least," said Steve Crocker, the church's Lifeline director.

About 50 volunteers from the church and three Jackson-area Girl Scouts troops worked at the event.

"It feels great, just to see people getting their stuff, having warm blankets and clothes," said Cianne Downard, 11, a student at Northwest Middle School and a member of Girl Scouts Troop 60174.

Saturday was the warmest day in the four years of the event, with temperatures above freezing.

Organizers said the event gets bigger every year. Volunteers handed out about 100 blankets the first year.

Rickie Walz of Jackson picked up blankets, coats and stuffed animals for himself and his nieces and nephews. He said he's unemployed and receives disability benefits.

"It helps out quite a bit to keep the blankets around in case the heat goes out," Walz said.

Starbucks on West Avenue donated the coffee. Other sponsors were Encore! Resale & More Store, 2390 Willdwood Ave.; Goodwill Industries; Tripp's Autoshop & Collision Center, 2999 W. Michigan Ave.; and Sparrow Health System of Lansing.
