Let’s Keep the Spirit of Generosity Alive after the Holidays!

December 22, 2011

Thanks, thanks, thanks to everyone for your efforts so far with Inter-Church Ministries’ Coats for Kids Project…many, many coats have been coming in but there is still a tremendous need for children’s and men’s coats, as well as warm clothing in all sizes. Kudos to the congregations, individuals, nursing homes and businesses that have gotten into the spirit of the Coats for Kids project and have been collecting gently used/new winter coats, jackets, mittens, hats, scarves, shoes, boots, sweatshirts and more…

Since August 1st, 582 local Erie County families have been referred to The Caring Closet – Inter-Church Ministries’ partner for distribution of the Coats for Kids…and this includes over 1400 children. Over 2000+ persons are currently being served by The Caring Closet – with more expected as the weather worsens. The needs are so great, but working together we can make a difference in the lives of some of our most vulnerable neighbors.

Let’s keep the spirit of generosity alive after the holidays…If you or someone you know receives a new coat for Christmas, why not donate your gently used old coat to the Coats for Kids project? Drop off locations in Erie, PA include: 1) The Caring Closet, 913 Payne Avenue (M-F 10 am – 2 pm, call 874-6975); 2) Chido’s Cleaners, 11th & State; OR 3) Connoisseur Media, One Boston Store Place.

Blessings to all for a warm and peace-filled Christmas season!
