Several weekends a year a team of volunteers is sent out to work at a local ministry site.

As the weather cools down, Waysiders begin donating new and gently used outerwear for the Coats for Kids project.
These donations are distributed to families in need through the Erie Community.
October through March donations may be brought in and hung on the rack just inside the ramped entrance (outside the Parlor).
