Maryland Branch joins Coat Drive

Maryland Branch joins Coat Drive

Last November, the Maryland Branch started collecting donated winter coats for distribution at Baltimore-area churches and a social center. Through Christmas and into the New Year, coats were being given away to needy individuals at St. Thomas Lutheran Church, Lutheran Church of the Redeemer, Nazareth Lutheran Church, and Helping Up Mission, all in Baltimore. More than 700 coats were donated by Maryland churches as far away as Accident, Maryland. At some of the Baltimore churches, school-children helped with organizing the donations and getting them ready to distribute. What a great lesson in Christmas sharing. (1-2016)
