Donations of gently used winter coats for children and adults will be accepted now through December 17 at the church, through the Coats for Kids program. Please place in the bin in the hallway by the church office.
The following will not be accepted: coats with rips, tears, broken zippers, or permanent stains, sweatshirts, vests, or spring/summer coats. Once cleaned, the coats will be distributed to those in need.
We are also collecting WHITE SOCKS for the homeless population of Worcester. Our goal is to collect 150 pairs of socks by Thanksgiving Sunday, Nov 19. (We’ve already passed that goal!) They will be distributed through Worcester Fellowship, the outdoor church which meets every Sunday, rain or shine, to share lunch and worship, on the Worcester Common.
Clean socks are precious when you are without a home, without access to washers and dryers. Let’s give the homeless folks of Worcester an early Christmas present of new white socks.
You can put them into the basket at the front of the sanctuary, or in the basket in the hallway by the office. The youth of the church will count them on Sunday, November 19 and report back to the congregation at the end of the service.
