Church hosts concert and annual coat drive

Tuesday, November 22, 2011
Emmanuel Baptist Church filled a cargo van with coats donated by area residents on Nov. 11. In conjunction with its annual coat drive, the church hosted a gospel concert featuring artist Sean Lea at the Crowder College Cassville Campus Community Center. Les Jacobs Ford-Mercury donated the use of a cargo van, and All Points Recycling donated boxes that were used to transport the donations to the Barry County OACAC Neighborhood Center after the event. Coats and other winter apparel donated during the event will benefit local needy families through the Share Your Christmas program.
