FPC Winter Warmth

Coat Distribution

Every year, First Presbyterian Church in Spartanburg sponsors the Winter Warmth mission. This mission provides a new coat to each child in need who is identified by school counselors in Spartanburg County. We would not be able to implement this mission without all of our wonderful volunteers. Volunteers help with every aspect of this mission from setting up and sorting coats, to shopping with families, to cleaning up and writing thank you letters. 

Please volunteer to help on Friday, November 13th for setup and/or on the day of coat distribution, Saturday, November 14th.

This year, our process will be different due to COVID-19 and the necessary measures we must take to keep our committee, volunteers, and families safe. Volunteers are needed to assist with setup the day prior, as well as the morning of to pull new winter coats for children and deliver to them while they wait in their vehicles. Volunteers and families will be required to wear masks and proper physical distancing of at least 6’ will be maintained both indoors and outdoors. Day of volunteers will be split into groups so that the process runs smoothly.

Please help us by signing up today, and invite your friends and family to do the same! *Please, no volunteers or children present younger than 15 years of age. Childcare will NOT be provided.
