Election Day Coat Drive–Vote and Donate a Coat!

Wilton Congregational Church will be holding its 54th annual Coat Drive from this Sunday, Nov. 4 to Tuesday, Nov. 6 (Election Day).

The public is invited to donate clean and gently used coats and outdoor wear, linens, blankets and sleeping bags to benefit four of the church’s Mission Partners:  Bridgeport Rescue Mission, Person to Person (Norwalk), Open Door Shelter (Norwalk) and Wilton Social Services.

Once donated items are brought to the church, volunteers work to examine, sort and bag items by size and style for children, men and women. In the past, the church’s Board of Mission and Service has received, sorted and donated over 1,500 items per year. The needs of the mission partners are great each year.

Please “Vote and Donate a Coat!” All items will be received in Pilgrim Hall at Wilton Congregational Church, 70 Ridgefield Rd., from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 4; and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday, Nov. 5 and 6.
