Annual LINK November Coat Drive in Sterling Needs Children’s Winter Clothes

November Program Donations: Coats, Hats, and Mittens

"He who is generous will be blessed, for he gives some of his food to the poor." Proverbs 22:9

Since 1972 LINK Inc., an all-volunteer-based non-profit Congressional Award winning organization has provided emergency support to needy individuals and families. LINK currently provides services to the citizens of Loudoun and Fairfax counties with a primary focus in the communities of Herndon, Sterling and Ashburn.

In advance of the Thanksgiving holiday, LINK solicits donations of new or gently used winter clothing. The 2016 Thanksgiving Coat Distribution will be held in November 19th from 8 am - 3 pm. All collected coats and winter apparel can be delivered to the Narthex of Sterling United Methodist Church (304 East Church Road) from Monday 11/14 through Friday 11/18 from 8:30 AM to 8:30 PM.

Winter Coats can be new or used, just clean and in good condition.

Men, women and especially children’s sizes are very much needed.

LINK sincerely appreciates the many businesses, civic groups and churches that can host clothing drives to assist in supporting our annual Holiday Programs.

Additionally, if there is any organization that is able to collect—but cannot transport the coats to Sterling United Methodist Church, Amy and Scott Thomas can make arrangements to pick them up.

In 2015, LINK volunteers distributed 2,900 used winter coats, gloves and mittens and about 850 additional winter items to 400 eligible local families during the Sterling United Methodist Church Thanksgiving program.

According to Amy Thomas, her neighbor, Grandma Dorothy cited that the Farmers Almanac is predicting another long and cold winter with The Northeast expecting “colder than normal" temperatures with "above normal" precipitation.

If you are interested in holding a Coat Drive through your employer, church or organization, please contact Scott Thomas & Amy Thomas, at 317-372-3866 or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
