Blankets will be available this winter for the homeless and other people in need. Today, Moline Township began distributing heavy duty wool, biodegradable blankets to groups in the Quad Cities.
For the past 14 years, the township has received these blankets from the Department of Defense. Supervisor, Don Johnston, says this year it received 1,200--that's 300 more than last year. He says the number changes every year.
