St. Martin, our patron saint, was famously known to show compassion, by tearing his cloak and giving a piece of it to a homeless man. Each year, St. Martin’s life and actions are celebrated with an annual coat drive in November, and this year the drive will run from November 1 through November 23. St.Martin’s Episcopal School and Fever United Soccer are joining our coat drive.
We are accepting clean coats in good condition, new or used, for children and adults. Bring your coats to the back of church or the preschool office and put them in the donation box marked “coat drive.” Why not ask your friends and neighbors for coats to donate?
Where are the coats going?
The coats will be donated to Union Gospel Mission. Union Gospel Mission of Tarrant County seeks to end homelessness. This is one of the many ways we are partnering to support Union Gospel Mission.
