Church of God Volunteers Sort Coats for MLK National Day of Service
On a bitter, cold morning the World Mission Society Church of God gathered together with Jersey Cares in preparation for their coat drive on Monday January 20, 2014 held in Garfield, New Jersey.
Despite freezing temperatures, members steadily unloaded piles of coats donated to those in need from a moving trailer, including adults and children’s coats of various sizes.
With swiftness, the members and other volunteers arranged themselves in pairs and groups, and assorted coats to their specified places to be bagged properly.
After bagging, an assembly line was formed, creating multiple rows for coats to be loaded, grouped by department and displayed.
A coat, although handled, was not needed as everyone involved in the project took turns in giving the warmth of sacrifice. The piles of coats were organized into 38 large sized bags efficiently in just under an hour.
Heavenly Mother New Jerusalem opened the way once again for the members to share the love Mother has for the world and has given so freely. While a coat may warm a body temporarily, it’s a Mother’s unconditional love that warms the heart.
