Warm and Cozy: A Local Outreach Program

Written by Unity United Church on. Posted in Interest Groups, News, Outreach, Warm and Cozy

The economy has been harsh for the past few years. That hardship can be felt most when the warm summer days begin fade into fall–then winter comes. Providing winter clothing for children is expensive. For some families in the communities that surround the church, it can be too expensive. As a result, local little ones (and not so little ones) go without snow-boots, coats, snowsuits, gloves, mitts and socks.

Shouldn’t all children have a right to be warm and cozy regardless of their economic status? (please keep reading >>)

Phyllis Stanley -a member of Unity’s faith family- thinks so! And so began her self-started outreach program which she named: “Warm and Cozy”. The program gives local children warm and comfortable clothing for the harsh winters as well as giving them a feeling of self respect. Unity United Church helps to support the work of Warm & Cozy. This year, more than 70 children need your help. For more information on what you can do to help a child be warm and cozy this winter, please send an email to Phyllis at mymusicpmc@gmail.com

    Hi Phyllis,

    I am a believer of your cause when I heard about it last week and again when you came to our church this week. Can you provide me with information so I can sell you to our people who do money raising with more detail of what you are about and do.Right now it is my word of mouth. You can also contact me at gwood@regal.ca

      Hi Katie

      Not sure if someone responded to your question already, so here is the information that you need: if you have school children, contact the children’s teacher(s) or the principal of their school. They will assess the situation and potentially make a referral on their behalf.

      God bless!
