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.  Beginning in 2017, Inter-Church Ministries announced a new distribution partner — The Erie City Mission’s Family Care Center, 1230 French Street, Erie.

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.2017 Poster

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

3.  Deliver the items to “The Family Care Center”, 1230 French Street, Erie, PA.  Call ahead (Debbie at 814-504-2703) to be sure there is someone there to accept your donations and to be directed where to best drop-off your items.
