NC Baptists are partnering with the Metropolitan New York Baptist Association to provide coats for New York City. Coats along with a Bible or Jesus Film will be given to each recipient during December. The Buncombe Baptist Resource Center will be a drop-off place for you to bring coats. You may begin now bringing coats Monday through Thursday between 10:00am and 3:00pm. Coats need to be new or gently used, can withstand NYC winter weather, no holes or stains, zippers must work and must be clean. For more information you may contact Roger Rearden at 828-458-9729. This is a great way to share the love of Jesus by providing warm coats and the gospel to residents of New York City. Deadline for bringing coats is October 20th.
