“I was naked, and you gave me clothing…”

We live in abundant times, with unemployment at historic lows and the stock market at historic highs. Don’t let those numbers fool you, though. There are still many people who struggle each day.

Matthew 25:36 speaks to the kindness of strangers, those who see others in need and, instead of ignoring them, give them the help they need. “I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.”

Colder days are here in central Alabama, and among the greatest of needs is outerwear to keep people warm. You and I may take a warm coat for granted, but many in our own community don’t have what they need to stay warm.

Join us, and donate new or gently worn coats this November, as we gather coats and jackets for men, women, and children that will be donated to the Jimmie Hale Mission. Collection boxes are available at these locations in the metro Birmingham area:
