They have kept us warm and sheltered many times when we did not have enough gear for the day’s adventure. The combination is quite warm and packs very small, and we believe it could be useful to others.

Mic De Min, Managing Member of Liberty Home Loans, along with Michael Williams, of M. C. Williams & Co. Investments, LLC recently helped provide warmth and protection to homeless veterans and people in need through the Woobie Project. They raised $6,400 and were able to purchase 188 “Woobie” blankets and ponchos, which will be delivered to Samaritan House in Denver in December.

Originating from the Vietnam era, a “Woobie” is a lightweight, easily packed, and field expedient blanket that can be used in many different environments and applications. It can be used as a blanket, pillow, shelter, seat cushion, and something soft to hold onto when you’re down-and-out. It is remarkably resilient to extreme heat and cold, dries quickly when wet, weighs next to nothing, and can be compressed into a tiny size.

In addition to blankets, Liberty Home Loans provided a rain poncho that integrates with the “Woobie” liner to provide a wearable shelter from the elements.. Furthermore, Williams donated $5,000 in matching funds to ensure as much support as possible was provided.

“Michael and I use a combination poncho-liner, aka ‘Woobie,’ and full-body poncho when we hike,” said De Min. “They have kept us warm and sheltered many times when we did not have enough gear for the day’s adventure. The combination is quite warm and packs very small, and we believe it could be useful to others. Blankets and ponchos are ideal for late winter, as well as the spring which can bring cold nights and rainy weather.”

De Min and Williams teamed up with Samaritan House in Denver, a homeless shelter that provides warm beds and hot meals all year long, and St. Joseph Catholic Parish in Golden, CO, to provide the blankets and ponchos to those in need. They will be given to veterans and people in need at multiple locations throughout December.
