Evangel University Donates 800 Blankets to Charities in Springfield

Due to an excess amount of blankets, Evangel University is donating the extra to those in need.

Schools officials say the blankets were intended for student housing, but the supply was greater than the demand.

Four nonprofit or charity organizations received donations:

  • International Institute: 300 blankets
  • The Kitchen: 200 blankets
  • Veterans Coming Home Center: 200 blankets
  • Hope Homes of the Ozarks: 100 blankets

Autumn Walker, the director of conference and event services at Evangel, said, “We are so glad they are going to be put to good use.”
