Everence winter clothing drive keeps Goshen warm
Community shows immense generosity with another increase in donations
The Goshen community donated 335 coats, jackets, hats, gloves and other cold-weather items for the fifth annual Everence® winter clothing drive.
The items and a $1,750 check were donated to The Window in Goshen, a nonprofit, faith-based organization that provides services to meet the essential needs of anyone with limited income.
“It amazes me how generous the community and our employees are,” said Marla Brenneman, Branch Manager of Everence Federal Credit Union.
Since the winter clothing drive started in 2013, momentum continues to grow along with the number of donations. Collected winter gear items nearly doubled in 2018 compared with prior years. Among the new and gently used items were 50 hand-crocheted hats from a local church group.
