Coats for the City - An Annual Project
Partnering with church planters all across New York and beyond. This year the North Carolina Baptists Missions Department has asked us to once again collect new and gently used coats. The goal for New York City was to collect 30,000 coats to be given to those in need along with a Bible or Jesus video in the language of the person receiving the coat. Our association alone collected and delivered over 2600 coats.
We will begin collecting coats again in August 2016 through the end of October 2016.. We are asking each mission group to collect $2 for each coat sent in order to help defray the cost of providing Bibles and/or the Jesus film in various languages as needed. This is not required but would be a tremendous way to help!
Volunteers are needed to help distribute the coats in New York City. If your mission group would like to travel to New York City around the first of December to help distribute coats, please call us so that we can get the information to you. We will post updates to this website as soon as they come in to us.
