Deaconess Karen Neal and Pastor Reginald Smith from Blackwell Chapel AME Zion Church in Jamestown recently donated over three dozen lap blankets for the residents at Lutheran Home and Rehabilitation Center. The lap blankets feature various patterns and colors for men and women and were hand-sew by Karen Neal herself. Residents use the blankets in their rooms, common areas, and in the hallways to keep warm during the winter months. Pictured is Edwin Rodriguez Jr., Director of Public Relations and Marketing at Lutheran, along with Heather Fields, a CNA at Lutheran and member of the Blackwell Chapel, receiving the lap blanket donations along with Grace Garvey, resident at LHRC.
