About the Project

It all started with a dream.

In fall 2020, Union member Erin Holman dreamed about children suffering in freezing weather. Holman woke up with a calling and a vision for a new ministry that provides winter coats to children experiencing homelessness. She immediately turned to her church family to help make this dream a reality.

As a new ministry of Union Church, the first Coat Project was held in November 2020. To start, we set a goal of raising $12,000 to purchase 130 quality coats and boots.

Above and beyond the original goal, we raised over $15,000 and we bought 150 coats and nearly 100 pairs of boots!

Our Goal for 2022!

After last year’s success, we are excited to set a more ambitious goal of raisingĀ $12,000 to order over 100 coats and over 75 pairs of boots!
