Coats for Kids

Bundled Up Fun – “© Gunkel”

Since 1989, Inter-Church Ministries has been a sponsor of the “Coats for Kids” project.  Tens of thousands of warm coats and jackets have been collected over the years by our churches and throughout the community and distributed to countless children and their families in the Erie community.  In addition, hundreds of pairs of warm mittens, gloves, and boots, as well as hats and scarves have been distributed to some of our community’s most vulnerable citizens.  In 2008, Inter-Church Ministries partnered with “The Caring Closet” of the Erie City School District for distribution thereby ensuring that the contributions reached the children that needed them most.

If you, your congregation or organization would like to start collecting these items, the process is as easy as 1.2.3:

1.  Set up a collection station at your site.  Use the attached poster to promote the project.coats for kids poster

2.  Email ICM an approximate count of the coats, jackets and small items that you collect.

3.  Deliver the items to “The Family Center’s Caring Closet, 913 Payne Avenue, Erie (E. 10th and Payne) – preferably after 1 pm.  Call ahead (874-6990) to be sure there is someone there to accept your donations and to be directed where to best drop-off your items.

Thanking you in advance for your help with this “Coats for Kids” Project!  For more information, contact ICM at (814) 454-2411 or email at
