Temperatures typically fall during the month of December. In order to keep ahead of the cold weather, Faith-In-Action Ministry has adult and children’s winter coats, mittens, scarfs and hats available for families in need in the Newport/Pittsfield area. Thermal underwear and winter socks would be accepted and used. Blankets and comforters are now available; however, due to the great need in the area, there appears to be an insufficient supply of winter coats and blankets. As a reminder to those who have not had an opportunity to drop off a new or gently used blankets, comforters, or articles of winter clothing, there is still time to do so. Donations may be dropped off at the Sebasticook Valley Federal Credit Union on 505 Somerset Avenue in Pittsfield or the Newport Cultural Center on 154 Main Street in Newport. Faith-In-Action is and remains committed to providing winter clothing, along with blankets and comforters to any individual or family living in the Newport/Pittsfield area in need. The community working together can insure that no one will be cold this winter. Faith-In-Action is an independent ministry, serving the diverse needs of individuals and families living in the area. For more information about Faith-In-Action Ministry, to receive winter clothing or to request to be placed on a list to receive a blanket or comforter contact Kevin Vickers at 207-313-4861.
