For the 597,856 children living in poverty in Ohio, and the 28,000,000 children nationwide, the warmth and comfort of a winter coat is a luxury.
By simply foregoing the comfort of your own coat, you can:
•Help bring attention to the cause of childhood poverty
•Raise funds for the movement to bring hope to children and families in need
•Offer family a HAND UP out of poverty through SON Ministries
But this is about more than a coat.
For children lacking what many would consider a basic necessity, poverty is real. Suburban poverty is real. Since 2005, the number of people living in suburban poverty as outnumbered their inner-city counterparts.
You can make a difference in your local community and beyond in the fight against poverty by spreading awareness, all by simply leaving your coat at home!
