During the month of October KiDSCOR is collect new and gently used Coats for Ava’s Angels. Here’s a little bit about this awesome mission project from the founder Ava!

My name is Ava Jones. I am 13 years old. I feel led by God to serve others.  When I was 8 I had an idea to create an organization that collects coats. My friends and I call ourselves “Ava’s Angels”.  We would meet at my house  after school and go door-to-door throughout neighborhoods and ask for any winter items they would be willing to donate.  We also placed a bin on our front porch for anyone to drop off their donation.  Flyers were left at homes for families that were not home at the time we were knocking. The first year, I had 15 “Angels” and  we collected 111 coats, the second year we collected 150 coats. The third year we collected 500 coats, the fourth year 550 and last year we collected 650 coats. I am now in Middle School and my  group of “Angles”  has grown to 40!!   This year my goal is to collect over 1,000 coats/ winter items.  Winter is just around the corner and I want to make sure that unfortunate families are warm this winter. You can help by donating a new or gently used coat,  hat, or pair of mittens. (any size) All of the items that are collected are delivered to our church and donated to Project Warmth.

Ava’s Angels thanks you for making a difference this winter
