A Winter Coat Drive is planned for Nov. 27 and Dec. 11 at Fuller Chapel UMC to help local families in need. Those in need can find warmth for the winter at Fuller Chapel UMC at 134 Meansville Street in Zebulon from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 27 and Saturday, Dec. 11.
“I was cleaning my daughters closet and the holy spirit placed it on my heart to do something for the community and I thought of a coat drive, with it being fall and winter soon,” said Karen Alexander. “I reached out to my church family and it was a go! Fuller Chapel actually had a community cookout a few weeks ago which was free of charge for the community and we had a good response with people picking up to go plates. We want the community to know that we’re here for them in any aspect. This is another way for us to show love and give hope to people. We’re living in desperate times and people are hurting. I feel a need to do more for others and not only say we love them, but show them too! We would like for those who are receiving and in need of a coat to be present at the coat drive.”
New or gently used coats can be dropped off at the church. For more information or drop off times, call 770-468-3481.
