Raised by 21 people in 23 months



First Christian Church of Blue Springs will hold their 13th Annual Freezin For A Reason Blanket Drive starting at noon Friday January 11th and run through 10:00 am Sunday January 13th.  First Christian Church of Blue Springs is located at 701 NW 15th Street, Blue Springs, MO.

Members of the church will construct a homeless camp on the front lawn of the church in an effort to bring awareness to the homeless and under housed situation in the metro area. They will also be collecting donations of blankets and warm clothing as well as monetary donations. Donations will then be distributed to several area agencies that assist those in need. Monetary donations will be used to purchase blankets and hygiene products that will also be distributed.  100% of monetary donations, less GoFundMe fees, is used to purchase these items.

Participants will use salvaged materals such as wood pallets, plywood, cardboard, tin and plastic to construct small shanties to sleep in for the weekend. They will use fire barrels as a heat source and no electricity.
The camp will be set up on Friday January 12th and leaders will be available for interviews for your early news upon request.
This event will take place rain or shine.

The website for the church is: FCCBSMO.ORG
