The Women’s Ministry at Henderson Grove Presbyterian Church are asking local churches and the community to help them in their effort to bring winter coats to needy children. The women’s ministry is teaming up with WSOC chief meteorologist Steve Udelson in his campaign, “Steve’s Coats for Kids.” The campaign collects as many new or lightly used coats as possible, and the Women’s Ministry started collecting coats December 16. They will accept donations through Sunday, January 13, 2013.

To donate: bring coats to Henderson Grove Presbyterian Church, 8724 Blair Road in Mint Hill, or, if you need the coats picked up, call Vicki Stafford at 704-563-9009 or email her at
