Winter Coat Drive Just In Time for Winter Weather

The annual Williamsburg House of Mercy Winter Coat Drive was a huge success! Despite working out of temporary office space during renovations, they distributed 67 coats and more than 80 other cold weather items to our neighbors in need. Once again, our community rose to the occasion and responded with generosity as temperatures reach record lows in our area. This is particularly helpful for the many families with children needing well fitting and warm items.

The Williamsburg House of Mercy partners with over 15 faith groups and various businesses and nonprofit organizations to help minister to the poor and homeless in Williamsburg. They see men, women, and children who are in desperate need of the basic necessities, including food and shelter. Services and programs focus on a mission of providing financial assistance, food stability, homeless services, crisis pregnancy support, homeless rehousing and other outreach assistance to the greater Williamsburg community.

For more information on how to join them in this effort, contact 757-229-3700 or visit their website williamsburghouseofmercy.org.
