Gifts that Give Back

< Back to Articles | Time to Read: 5 minutes

Churchill Mortgage is thrilled to announce our largest purchase commitment ever with Sackcloth & Ashes, a Salem, Oregon-based, mission-driven company that provides blankets to homeless shelters.

Sackcloth & Ashes' mission is to highlight organizations that are creating solutions for helping the homeless. The donated blankets help connect the organization to amazing people and other organizations doing incredible work on a grassroots level. This allows Sackcloth & Ashes to ultimately support and promote the greater good in communities across the U.S.

Through this partnership, we will purchase 20,000 Sackcloth & Ashes blankets – estimated at up to $2.5 million in total – to offer as closing gifts to our home buyers over the next two years. For each blanket purchased, Sackcloth & Ashes will donate a blanket to a local homeless shelter in the home buyer’s area.


This ultimately helps the nonprofit reach its goal of providing one million blankets to homeless shelters by 2024 through its “Blanket the United States” campaign. Churchill Mortgage is Sackcloth & Ashes’ exclusive mortgage partner through 2022 and one of the nonprofit’s largest corporate partners.

As one of our home buyers, you may select your gift from approximately 50 blankets on the Sackcloth & Ashes website. The blankets are from 100% recycled material, and are eco-friendly, good for the environment, and ethically made and produced in Salem.

Clients at Closing with Gift

Among the options is the “Mountain Churchill” blanket, designed in recognition of this partnership and featuring an exclusive colorway and a label. Each blanket is delivered to the you in a customized box, with an encouraging message to refill it with essential items—like toiletries, snacks, first-aid kits, and water—and then instructions to donate it to a local homeless shelter.

“Our ongoing partnership with Sackcloth & Ashes reflects Churchill Mortgage’s steadfast commitment to serve our communities and make a positive impact,” said Kevin J. Hanna, president of the Northwest Region of Churchill Mortgage. “We are honored to help Sackcloth & Ashes provide support to people experiencing homelessness and extend their reach across the United States.”

Churchill Mortgage first partnered with Sackcloth & Ashes in 2019. To date, the company has given more than 5,000 blankets to our homebuyers, each matched with a blanket donation to a local shelter. Building on the partnership’s early momentum, 15 Churchill locations nationwide are participating in the program.

“We are extremely grateful for our ongoing partnership with Churchill Mortgage,” said Bob Dalton, founder of Sackcloth & Ashes. “Our organizations share a similar values-driven ethos and genuine desire to give back to others and make a meaningful difference in the world. We are deeply appreciative of their ongoing support and commitment to champion this initiative.”

The partnership is currently being offered by various Churchill Mortgage Home Loan Specialists across the country.  Speak with your Home Loan Specialist to confirm participation.
