Coats will be collected through October.
Erwin United Methodist Church is conducting its 2018 “Share the Warmth” Coat Collection Project. “Gently Used Coats” and other winter wear items of all sizes for men, women and especially children will be collected, cleaned, and given away free to insure everyone stays warm this winter.
Coats will be collected through October, and will be given away at the church’s Family Life Center on Saturday, Nov. 3, and Saturday, Nov. 10, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The Rev. Don Mitchell, Erwin United Methodist pastor, said, “Community members are encouraged to clean out their closets and donate any gently-used coats and winter wear for children and adults in need in our community. Your help in sharing the warmth this winter is deeply appreciated.”
Call the church office at 910-897-8894 for more information.
