"You are a child of God. You are wonderfully made, dearly loved, and precious in His sight." - Psalms 139
Each year the Rockport Christian Resource Center teams up with our local schools and other community organizations to provide warm winter coats to children who otherwise might not have them. Through our affiliation with the Marine Corps Toys For Tots program we are also able to supply each family with new toys and games for their children (while supplies last).
(Coat-A-Kid program is subject to income limitations of no more than $1600.00 per month for a single parent home or $2400.00 per month for a two parent home.)
"Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from Him." - Psalms 127:3
When a child in need receives a brand new winter coat, it helps to improve self-confidence, peer acceptance, school attendance, and overall wellness. We believe that every child, regardless of economic circumstance, deserves their own brand new coat. Last year, 150 children benefited from your support of Coat-A-Kid — no child went without a warm winter coat! We hope to meet the needs of our kids again this year and we need your help.
Winter can be brutal in Indiana. Without the support of our generous partners, many children will not have a coat to keep them warm. This is a devastating reality for many students and families across Spencer County. Some families are not able to purchase new winter coats, in Indiana 68.5% of children 18 or younger are living in homes at or below the poverty level.
We rely on the support of community partners willing to step up and step in to provide assistance. South Spencer and North Spencer Schools, as well as various local organizations are working with The Rockport Christian Resource Center to provide for our children. This year's goal is to be certain all who need it are provided with a warm winter coat.
