MEDINA – Oak Orchard Assembly of God is embarking on a new mission this year to ensure no school child is cold this winter.

Paster Bryan McDowell has announced the church wants to help schools prepare for cold weather with their first coat drive.

“We are hoping to make this an annual event,” McDowell said. “Anyone can drop off new or lightly used coats at the church office from 9 a.m. to noon during the rest of this week or during the Sunday service.”

They are also collecting hats and mittens.

The donations will be given to Lyndonville and Medina schools to be distributed to students in grades kindergarten through 12th grade.

The church is located at 12111 Ridge Rd., Medina.
