Coats for the Clothesline
Through our annual service projects, we expand on the importance of kindness beyond preschool and into the community. This year’s project is COATS for the CLOTHESLINE. We ask families to donate gently-used, outgrown coats and jackets for the Clothesline, a Tipp City non-profit. One teacher introduced our coat drive and read several books about coats and how wool is made into cloth and then sewn into coats.
Of course, we sang, “Baa Baa Black Sheep” and felt some wool.” Parents are always very supportive as they help us enrich their children’s lives through service. A walking trip is planned so children and parents can donate the coats to Clothesline volunteers in the near future.
The Clothesline, located in the Courtyard on N 2d Street in Tipp City, is a resale shop that relies on gently-used and new donations to sell to the public. All profits go to over 40 Miami Co agencies that help others throughout the year. This non-profit has operated for over 35 years with the support of volunteers from a number of area churches.
