Winter Coat Drive 10/17-11/21
Syracuse-bound Afghan refugees (nearly 300) are expected to continue to arrive as winter approaches, with Luther Memorial supporting a Winter Coat Drive from 10/17 to 11/21. There are two ways to help! Share a new or gently worn coat and leave in designated boxes in the Social Hall; additionally, you may take fliers available (expected 10/17) for you to take to your place of work or to any business you think might post a flier and collect coats. And of course, fliers to share with your extended family, neighbors and friends. If taking a flyer/box please sign the “Sign-Up” sheet posted in the social hall so we’ll know how many fliers are out in the community and where. This coat drive will run until Sunday, 11/21. Boxes will be available for you to take with you and more will be available when needed. Coats are shared with people as they get off the planes at Hancock into our freezing CNY winter.This drive is an opportunity for us to develop relationships with people in our community, to let them know about Luther Memorial and yourself as a disciple of Christ. All for the Hope and Healing of the World in Jesus’s name!
