From The Living Church-
Homeless people in Boston have a new way to keep the coming season’s wintry elements at bay: a water-resistant, wind-breaking thermal blanket made of Mylar. For that, they’re thanking a ministry by and for homeless people at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul.
The cathedral’s community of homeless and recently housed individuals rolled out its Cloak Project on November 18. That night, participants began handing out 8,000 of these donated, compact, and lightweight blankets, just like the ones that are used to cover marathoners when they cross a finish line.
“Why not have homeless helping homeless?” asked a man named David, who slept under a Cambridge bridge for years, as he prepared to hand out the blankets. “It might save someone’s life.”
Each blanket costs less than $1. Episcopal churches, schools and other institutions rallied their people to buy blankets on Amazon.com and ship them to the cathedral. Christ Episcopal Church in Needham donated 3,000.
