In 2013 we started Warm the World. It is our signature community missions event of the year. We spend all year collecting new and gently used coats, scarves, gloves, hats, and blankets. All age groups in our church are involved in making this event a success.
Our children decorate welcome signs and donation boxes. Our teenagers and adults help sort donations, organize the giveaway area, and help guests pick out new coats.
Each fall we have a giveaway day for anyone in our community who may be in need of a warm item. In 2016 we gave away over 350 coats. We also partner with local schools to provide coats to students in need as part of this project.
We are always looking for volunteers to help the day of or to help with all the prep work that goes into being ready for the giveaway.
