Coats for Kids


This month we are going to be focusing our efforts on collecting winter coats, gloves and hats for children in Elementary School, Middle School and High School. We will distribute these items through the Family Resource Coordinators at each school.


This is a great way for us to minister to the needs of children and youth in our community. One helpful idea is to leave the tags on the coats just in case the Family Resource folks need to exchange them for a different size. We will ask the Family Resource Coordinators to remove all tags before the coats are given to the children.


We will need all kinds of different sizes of coats, hats and gloves. Please place the coats on the rack near the Serenity Room, or if you prefer to give a donation marked “Coats,” we will be glad to do the shopping for you. We couldn’t think of a more appropriate mission than to share the blessing of a warm coat with a child.


15 If you know someone who doesn’t have any clothes or food, 16 you shouldn’t just say, “I hope all goes well for you. I hope you will be warm and have plenty to eat.” What good is it to say this, unless you do something to help?
