The Senior High Sunday School Class at the Pocahontas Center spearheaded a Winter Clothing Drive at our church. They challenged each class to see who could bring the most items to help make a difference. They even involved the congregation by putting a box on each side of the aisle, and challenged us to see which side would bring more items.
All in all, Share the Warmth was a huge success! The Sr. High class reported how many hats, gloves, coats, sweatpants, etc were all donated and taken to the Upper Des Moines Office in Pocahontas. They were also very diplomatic by declaring that it was a tie between both sides of the congregation!
Through the help of our generous congregation, along with the Sunday School classes, we were able to collect:
- 4 pairs of boots
- 116 pairs of socks
- 121 pairs of gloves
- 170 hats
- 4 scarves
- 11 coats
- 2 pairs of snowpants
- 2 sweaters
If you do the math, that’s 430 items we were able to donate to Upper Des Moines!!! They were so very grateful to receive these winter necessities!! We would like to thank you all for your thoughtful gifts that will help “share the warmth” with many families in our community this winter! Let’s all pray that they may feel the warmth of Jesus this Christmas and throughout the New Year!! 🙂
And a special thanks to the Sr. High Sunday School Class for being such great examples of Christ by organizing this heart (and hands and feet!) warming project! You rock!!
