MABC Advent Clothing Drive
and New York Cares Coat Drive


As we approach Advent and the changing weather of the new season, it’s time to think about those in our community who might need a helping hand with warm clothing. In the past, MABC has collected clothing and distributed items to those less fortunate. In this season of giving, as we celebrate the gift of Jesus’ birth, we’re restarting our clothing distribution efforts, albeit on a very small scale because of limited storage space. From now until Christmas, we will accept new or gently used blankets, warm hats, gloves, scarves and socks. Your gifts may be dropped off at the church on Sundays, either before or after the 11:00 a.m. service.


In addition, each year the New York Cares program sponsors a winter coat drive during the holiday season. You can donate winter coats for this program at MABC no later than Sunday, December 20th, so we can deliver them to the New York Cares warehouse in time for Christmas! For more information about this program, check out their website: www.newyorkcares.org/coat-drive.
