Coats 4 Kids
Updated Nov. 1, 2021
We are starting our 3rd Coats 4 Kids Mission this month. As before, we are collecting new or very gently used coats for children ages 6 through 11. As you are shopping this month through November, please purchase these and bring them to the church, to Room 309 (next to the little bathrooms in the SS wing), or drop them off during office hours.
Our plan this year is to take these to Ebenezer Avenue Elementary to be given to children in need. We also have around $1,000 available from last year that will be used to purchase coats for the preschool children at Rock Hill Head Start. Donations to this fund are welcome and can be made on the church website under Giving/ UMM Coats 4 Kids, or via check to Woodland UMC (UMM Coats 4 Kids in the memo line).
We would love to expand this ministry to children in other elementary schools. If you know of a school that is willing to coordinate distributing coats to children in need, and are willing to coordinate getting donated coats to that school, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
