We are conducting a collection of new shoes and cleaning supplies to replenish the Children’s Advocacy Center’s Cora’s Care Closet. The Children’s Advocacy Center’s mission is to help families with abuse prevention and intervention. Cora’s Care Closet meets the emergency needs of the children and non-offending family members that they serve. Often, the children who are removed from their homes leave with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Caregivers may be struggling to meet the new and unexpected needs of a child in crisis. The items are provided free of charge. The shoes and cleaning items we are collecting will replenish their shelves and help to ensure safer environments and stability for their clients and families.
There will be a display set up in the narthex that will have tags with suggested donation items. Please take one beginning the weekend of October 17 and then return the item the weekend of the October 31 to the same display, where there will be a collection basket for the donations. Questions can be directed to Alyssa Gaerte, the Mission Coordinator at OLL: firstname.lastname@example.org, 616-399-1062.
