St. Anne the Tart is partnering with Bogg Ministries by collecting kids coats of all sizes and rounding up bill totals to keep Dayton area kids warm this winter.
THE TART WITH HEART: ST. ANNE THE TART’S 501C3 HOSTS HOLIDAY COAT DRIVE-IN PARTNERSHIP WITH BOGG MINISTRIES.
This December, St. Anne the Tart is collecting kids coats of all sizes to be distributed by Bogg Ministries to children in low-income apartment complexes in the Dayton area. Along with collecting coats, St. Anne the Tart will use its popular ‘round-up’ program to raise additional funds that will be used to purchase winter coats for children in these areas.
Owner Megan Smith has a personal connection to providing winter coats to children as her own mother, who died by suicide this year, received winter coats from charitable organizations during her years in a children’s home in Columbus, Ohio in the 1950s. “My mom raised me with a deep understanding that many kids in both unstable and seemingly stable environments, truly have no access to coats and blankets during the winter months. A chance to do our part in downtown Dayton for kids just down the street from us is the best way I can honor her memory.”
Collections and donations will be accepted at St. Anne the Tart at 1500 E 5th St, Monday – Saturday: 7 am – 3 pm from December 1st through 21st.
