Clothing Collection from January 7-28
It’s almost time for the annual Church of the Holy Spirit Clothes Drive for seafarers passing through our area. From the SCI website: “Clothing is often an issue. Many seafarers come from tropical countries where they cannot even buy cold weather garments. When they join a ship’s crew they often don’t know where it will go during their six months or more on board. Or they think they’ll be on a warm-weather route and then wind up in Philadelphia on a frigid winter day.” (www.sciphiladelphia.org/ the-seafarers-life).
So if you have new or good condition cool or cold weather clothing that you would like to pass on to SCI for the seafarers, please put it aside until our collection this coming winter. Thanks and please contact Johnine Byrer with any questions or for more information.
