Can you imagine being outside in the freezing cold without adequate clothing?

The youth group, C.R.E.W. (C.R.E.W. stands for “Christians Ready, Equipped, and Willing” and youth in grades 7 through 12 are encouraged.), would like to do a winter clothes drive for the unfortunate in our community.

We would appreciate donations of gently used or new winter coats, gloves, scarves, rain/snow pants. We would prefer that hats and warm socks be purchased new.

We will start collecting on November 10th. We will have bins located in the great hall for you to drop off at anytime during the week.

We plan to distribute to local organizations and during Code Purple.

Thank you for your help in advance,
