Share the Warmth Happy Hour at Takoma Station Tavern
with the JC-DC Juniata Club
Join alumni, parents, family and friends for live music, happy hour specials and a winter service event at Takoma Station Tavern, one of the area’s best longstanding jazz and soul bars! We'll enjoy the music of "Neo Soul" and also listen to a brief description of the the Warm Coats and CARing projects. Bring your donation of coats, gloves, hats, and scarves for children and their parents and/or new or gently used books for children in grades 2-6 in Langley Park, Maryland. Winter clothes for all sizes (children and adults) are welcome! We hope to see you there! If you can't attend, but would still like to donate, checks made payable to Lutheran Campus Ministry can be mailed to Karin Brown '06, 5706 Vassar Drive, College Park, MD 20740. Please make a note in the memo line that it is to be used for the Warm Coats or CARing project.
The Warm Coats Project collects new or gently used coats, gloves, hats and scarves for low-income children and families in the Langley Park area. This area has a high population of first generation immigrants, many from El Salvador, who may lack the resources to get warm winter clothing. Lutheran Campus Ministry at the University of Maryland has been running this program for almost ten years, when the principal of McCormick Elementary in Langley Park alerted them to the need for both children and their parents. Since then, they have collected hundreds of warm coats, gloves, hats and scarves and given them to the school and a community leader to distribute. These basic clothing items can make a huge difference in the lives of those lacking proper winter weather protection.
The CARing Project collects books for children at risk, grades 2-6, from the Langley Park community who attend a weekly mentoring program called "the CARing project." Also run by Lutheran Campus Ministry at the University of Maryland, the CARing Project pairs University of Maryland student mentors with children. Each week the children are invited to take home three books to keep from the library. Your donation of gently used or new books would be greatly appreciated!
