Christian Center holding coat, jacket drive
From Staff Reports
Nov 5, 2007 - Good News Christian Center Church is hosting “Give a Little Warmth,” jacket drive through the last week of this month.
Donations of new and like-new coats and jackets of all sizes for adults and children may be made Tuesdays-Saturdays, Nov. 6-27, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at MN Resale Store, 105 Hinnant St. (between Gilmer and Davis streets at the railroad crossing).
The jackets will be presented to men, women and children in the community. These are people who “barely make enough to get by and could use a helping hand to stay warm during the cooler months.” Good News encourages people to “please give based on the thermometer of your heart! give someone something to be thankful for.”
Donations that have rips, holes and stains will not be accepted. Jackets must be clean and “something that you would appreciate receiving as a gift yourself.”
Ministries, health and welfare organizations in the community will give coupons to those in need. Coupons are required to pick up a coat. Those who have a coupon may pick up the free item at Good News Christian Center, 717 Industrial Drive next to the League Street overpass, Wednesday, Nov. 28, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., or until supplies run out. Only one item per coupon, and there will be no “holding” items.
