September 1st through October 30th 2019 – LOVE OUR NEIGHBOR – We Are Collecting Coats & Blankets!
Bring to the Church on Sundays or Stop by the Administrative Offices – Donations must be Clean (Not New)
From September 1st until October 30th, Parkside Church in Auburn is collecting gently used or new coats and blankets for their 2nd annual coat and blanket drive. Last year, the church gave over 400 coats and blankets along with with a bag of groceries to every family who showed up to the, “Love Our Neighbors” event, which takes place at Parkside on Halloween night. The event has activities for the kids, a free concert and of course free groceries, coats and blankets for every family in need.
The Coat and Blanket drive was the idea of former Dallas Cowboy and all-pro tight end, Doug Cosbie. Cosbie is a resident of Newcastle, CA. He teamed up with Clay Rojas of Placer County FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) and Pastor of Outreach at Parkside Church. Rojas and Cosbie devised a plan and the mission was launched in 2018. This year FCA and Parkside Church plan on doubling the numbers and reaching more people who are less fortunate and ill-prepared for the winter season.
The Coat and blanket drive will be conducted this year at Parkside Church and three different high school football games in Placer County.
