PAX if you haven’t heard yet, my family and I are partnering with Pathways by hosting a Cold Weather Clothing Drive from now until Nov. 23. We are delivering the clothing on the 25 of Nov. and will be serving as a family on November 30 by distributing the clothing to the less fortunate. Please join in with us in this endeavor as we are collecting new or lightly used coats, jackets, blankets, gloves, hats, scarves, etc. for Pathways to distribute.
You can drop off the clothing at any Region AO and the Site Q’s will get it to me, or you can deliver them yourselves to my office at the address below. Thank you all for considering assisting the community in this way.
727 Dilworth Lane, Suite 204, Rock Hill, SC 29732 (just above Nishie G’s on India Hook Rd., across from Wall St.)
Our family story my wife posted on Facebook is here:
Yesterday morning, Kyle was running in the frigid temperatures in Rock Hill when he noticed a man sleeping beside a building covered in a blanket. He was moved to tears and wanted to help him in some way but didn’t have his wallet on him at the time. He told the story to our family at breakfast and all of our hearts were heavy but we ALL wanted to take action. Last night, Stella and I prayed for that man and brainstormed how we could help him and others in our community who may be stranded on the streets in this cold weather. So, we decided to spearhead a Winter Coat Drive! I contacted Pathways Community Center in Rock Hill to see if there was a need for winter items. I spoke with Kelly and she was so touched to hear of our call to action as there is a huge need for coats at their organization at this specific time. Y’all, that’s a God thing and I was completely moved to tears!! I told her about our story and how even our children were so eager to help. Let the Winter Coat Drive begin!! If you have any new or gently used coats, scarves, hats, gloves or blankets for any gender or age that you would like donate, we will be accepting donations from now until Saturday, November 23. You may bring items to Kyle’s Edward Jones office or to our home and we will be taking them to Pathways Community Center on Monday, November 25.
