Divine Events invites you to join us in helping with the Santa Clara Probation Department's
"Winter Relief Coat Drive"
ALL sizes of coat are welcome -- clean and in good condition, please. It is COLD outside .... so please check your closets for coats you aren't using/ have been outgrown/ are no longer needed.
The coats will be taken to our contact with the Probation Department. She will take them to the SCC Juvenile Hall and the kids there sort them and prepare them for distribution. (Kids who have earned an outing will be allowed to assist with the distribution)
The coats are distributed directly to the homeless in San Jose (many of whom have mental health issues), and to the homeless living by Guadalupe creek, in shelters and through Church and Clothes Closets.
Each year this changes depending upon the identified needs and the programs available in the community.
In addition, you are invited to "Get Your Craft On" and add some homemade to your holidays .....
come to donate your coats and stay to make something handcrafted!! (a contribution of $10 to help pay for materials would be gratefully accepted)
