CAFÉ ON VINE

We will be collecting warm items for adults: socks, gloves, hats, long johns, blankets, sweat shirts, boots...These items will also be given to the homeless at the Christmas Eve meal.  It's a good time to clean out that coat closet.

COATS FOR KIDS CAMPAIGN

Small Beginnings is excited to be a drop off spot for the Coats for Kids campaign again this year! We will be gathering winter apparel for men, women, and children, November 1 through December 8.  The items we will be collecting include: gently used or new coats and winter accessories including hats, earmuffs, scarves, gloves, and snow pants. Because of the school construction this year, we are asking that all donations be brought to the box just inside the door of the Small Beginnings classroom in the ELC building. Last year we collected 129 coats and 82 accessories. Let’s see if we can top that number this year! If you have any questions, please contact the school office and ask for Julie Morrison.

Thank you in advance for helping children in our QC community to stay warm and cozy this winter!

Julie Morrison
