The Rotary Club of Blanco County’s coat and blanket drive, held in October, was a huge success. The club gathered approximately 50 large bags of coats and blankets from the Blanco and Johnson City communities that were provided to refugees in northern Mexico. Supporting the ongoing Mission of H.O.P.E. (Helping Overcome Poverty Everywhere), the coats and blankets were delivered to Kaleo Ministries in Reynosa, Mexico and Rey de Reyes Methodist Church in Piedras Negras, Mexico. Each of these organizations are feeding and sheltering many refugees today. We would like to thank the citizens of Blanco County for your generous donations.
