Preschool to Provide Coats to the Needy (1/31/20)

Posted by on Jan 1, 2020 in EventAnnouncement, Mission: AroundTowns, OFH | 0 comments

Our Father’s House, is more than a pre-school.  Part of it’s curriculum is to demonstrate Christian love.  In church-speak, we call that “Missions Projects,” but whether it collections for the Heiffer International, Pitman Food Pantry, or UNICEF, our preschool is always involved in helping others.  Each month they sponsor a “Mission’s Project.”  This month, they’re collecting coats for needy families.

It’s hard for most of us to imagine having to survive the cold winter without a warm coat.  And yet, many people lack such a basic necessity.  At the same time, many of us have closets filled with clothing (such as coats) that we never wear anymore.  It’s too bad that they can’t be put to a better use… or can they?

During the month of January, Our Father’s House will collect “gently used” coats.  They’ve placed a large orange box in the Narthex, and the collected coats will be donated to the People for People Foundation.  The coats will be donated to needy people throughout Gloucester County.

Donations will be accepted at PUMC until Sunday January 26.



Note: During the week the bin is located on the first floor of the Educational wing (near the Our Father’s House rooms. On Sunday, it is moved to the Narthex

If you don’t see it in the Narthex, look by the OFH rooms.
