Gila Valley Ministerial Association collecting coats for the less fortunate

Contributed Article

GRAHAM COUNTY – Many families in the Gila Valley are unable to afford cold-weather apparel for their children or even themselves. With so many people struggling financially, your donations mean more this year than ever. The Gila Valley Ministerial Association invites you to join us as we respond to this need during the months of September and October with a Gila Valley Coat Drive.

We hope to collect 100 new or gently used coats suitable for infants – adults.

Bring your coats to Sherry Brady’s office at the First United Methodist Church located at 1020 S. 10th Ave. anytime from now until noon Oct. 16h. (The office is located on the west side of the Fellowship Hall across from Our Neighbor’s Farm.)

The coats will be handed out Tuesday, Oct. 16, between the hours of 5 – 8 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall at First United Methodist Church.
