Request Materials

Church World Service provides Blankets, Hygiene Kits, School Kits and Emergency Cleanup Buckets to qualifying 501(c)(3) agencies as needs arise. Assistance will be granted according to the following criteria:
  • Proof of 501(c)(3) status for the agency itself or the agency assuming responsibility for materials. Have documentation ready at the time of submission.
  • The need for CWS Blankets and/or Kits is the result of an emergency situation within the local community or a continuing unmet need.
  • Ordinarily only a single response will be made to any one agency within a calendar year with the exception of needs associated with an emergency or disaster response.
  • Because of the generosity of many donors, blankets and kits are provided to organizations free of charge. CWS needs your help to continue providing these free resources to organizations requesting them. As a way to share with donors how and where their donations are being distributed, CWS requires all receiving agencies to submit photographs and the user-end report following your distribution. Agencies that do not submit these items will not be eligible to request blankets and kits the following calendar year.

If you qualify and would like to request CWS materials, please fill out the form below:
