We would welcome your help! Whether you'd like to shop for coats and socks, organize, give money toward coats or socks, or help deliver to the schools!
Did you know the Ascension Parish Head Start systems serves over 150 children and their families on the East and West side of Ascension Parish? So, every January - December, we begin collecting coats & socks - when they are on SALE! Janet and her team start labeling all the sizes as we purchase coats, on sale. Once school starts, the Coat Team reaches out to all the teachers for their "orders." Then, in November, before Thanksgiving, all the "orders" are filled and everyone has the opportunity to deliver the coats and socks to preschools and head starts all over Ascension Parish!
Janet Hammonds leads our Coats & Socks drive for kids each year. Please feel free to give her a call (225-776-7175) for more info or to help OR click on the below button to email Janet.
All coats and socks need to be brought to Newsong no later than November 12th. Please drop off coats/socks in the Prayer Room at the top of the stairs leading to worship space and immediately to the right.
