Rock Island, IL November 1, 2013 -- The need has never been greater and yet it has never been easier for you to make a difference in our community. Christian Care is collecting clean, gently used coats and jackets as part of the One Warm Coat community service project. Coats of all shapes and sizes are welcome. One Warm Coat is dedicated to distributing reusable coats, free of charge, directly to local children and adults.

The program is an easy way for you and your family to pass along coats and jackets that you no longer need while making sure that no one goes without such a basic necessity as warm, winter coat. Christian Care has simplified the donation process. Just bring the coats you wish to donate to their Rescue Mission located at 2209 3rd Avenue in downtown Rock Island from November 4 through December 2. Christian Care will then distribute them to local individuals in need.

One Warm Coat is national non-profit organization that supports and encourages coat drives. It helps individuals, groups, companies and organizations across the country collect coats and deliver them to local agencies that distribute the coats free to people in need. Since its inception in 1992, One Warm Coat has provided more than one million coats at no cost to those in need.

Christian Care is transforming the lives of homeless individuals, victims of domestic violence, veterans, men and women coming out of prison, and the mentally ill. Their two facilities—a domestic violence shelter for abused women and children and a rescue mission for homeless men—provide safe shelter, nutritious meals, clothing, counseling, referrals and guidance to those in need. Christian Care’s services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week with the goal of nourishing the bodies, minds, hearts and souls of the men, women and children who come seeking a new way of life. Help Christian Care help others; donate now. Call Lindsey at 309-786-5734 for more information, or visit Christian Care’s website at www.christiancareqc.org.
