The ” Wrap Them In Warmth” coat drive returns to Newville for a 3rd consecutive year, thanks to the commitment of Sharon Showley. During the first year of this event, 45 coats were collected. Last year, over 100 coats were collected, some with hats and gloves. Coats will be collected on the front porch of the Big Spring Dental Center, 85 South High Street, Newville. Plans are to distribute the coats to children of the community at the Big Spring Food Bank on December 21, 2015. The distribution will take place at the Big Spring United Lutheran Church, 101 Crossroads School Road, West Pennsboro Township, across from the Mancinos Family Restaurant.
Sharon offers for few reminders:
1. Your donations will remain here in Newville, for our Big Spring children.
2. Food Bank qualifying documentation is necessary.
3. Hats and gloves are welcome.
4. Coats sizes are to be for elementary school children.
