Support the St. James Church Coat Drive with your generosity!
Interested in act of kindness? Support the St. James Church Coat Drive beginning November 7 to December 7, 2015. Rather than throwing those coats that no longer fit or aren’t to your liking anymore, give it someone who could appreciate it! So take the time to search through your closet because your spare coats can provide vital warmth for someone in need. Begin raising awareness by spreading the news of this event by word of mouth. Everyone deserves to have at least one warm coat and that can be achieve by starting with you! The act of helping others can stimulate a sense of well-being. Knowing that you sacrificed something such as time, in order to assist others in need can give you a sense of purpose in life or inner satisfaction.
The holidays are right around the corner so it’s always good to give back to those who truly need the assistance. No good deed goes unpunished. The participating companies listed below are rewarding those willing to donate a coat with a 10% discount.

St. James is such a loving and caring church [that] really goes out of their way for their parish. Having the two shops gives us an access to really reach out to people and we have a lot of caring families that will hopefully contribute to this drive.
