Community Coat Drive

Blistering Cleveland winters are a very challenging and often dangerous time for people experiencing homelessness. Old Stone Church is collecting coats, blankets, and other warm winter items (gloves, hats, etc.) to aid people in need right in our city. Winter gear is needed for both children and adults.

Drop off new or gently used winter items outside the Ontario Street entrance at 91 Public Square on Sunday, December 13th between 12PM and 2PM.

Please consider donating the following:

  • Coats
  • Blankets
  • Hats, gloves, scarves
  • Snow pants
Please wear a mask and practice social distancing. Volunteers will receive with no contact and deliver donations to our community partner agencies. Cash and online donations (secure via PayPal) are also welcome. Checks should be made to Old Stone Church with “Coat Drive” in the memo.

Donate a Hygiene Kit

Each year, Old Stone Church members collect toiletries for our neighbors experiencing homelessness. These items are collected into complete kits and given out at HandsOn at Business Volunteers Unlimited annual “Homeless Stand Down” event.

The following items are needed: Deodorant, Lotion, Tooth Paste, Shave Cream & Shampoo / Conditioner
Our goal is to collect 225 of each hygiene kit item by January 2021. Your generous donations can be delivered to OSC in the following ways:
  • Drop off your donation(s) on Mondays or Thursdays from 10AM to 12PM at the Ontario Street entrance. Michael Rekoric has graciously offered to be on site to collect donations
  • Purchase the item(s) on Amazon (or another online store), and have them directly shipped to Old Stone Church: 91 Public Square, Cleveland, OH 44113
  • Buy the item(s) when you are doing your weekly grocery shopping over time, and deliver or send them to OSC
  • Send a check to OSC (address above), with the memo designated as “Homeless Stand Down”
  • Call the church office (216-241-6145) and ask if someone can pick up the item(s) from your home for delivery to OSC
Hygiene items are critically needed, especially as COVID-19 has impacted employment and financial security in the lives of so many across our community.
