Mission Project for Children

Brenna Phillips —  November 14, 2011

Winter is coming. The temperatures are getting colder. Many children have outgrown their coats and sweaters from last year. What to do with those coats?

Why not have a coat-drive and collect new or gently used coats and sweaters and blankets for children and families who need them? There are many children who do not have a nice coat or a coat that is warm enough for the winter months.

A coat drive is great mission project for young children. They can take  leadership roles to collect the coats and sort them out in the collection boxes. They will feel like they are making a difference in the lives of other children and sharing Jesus’ love.

Find a local organization in town in which to donate the coats and sweaters and blankets in the name of the children at church or school.

  1. Great idea! We did this a couple of years ago, as a application to a serious on “God is generous.” We collected coats and money (to buy coats) over a few weeks.
