Haven of Rest Ministries is the largest private social service organization in the Summit, Medina, Portage, Stark, Tuscarawas, Wayne, Holmes Counties area. Please help us give back to those in our region that are less fortunate. Bring in your CLEAN, gently used winter coat, and receive a coupon for 15% off any regularly priced in-stock clothing item. Help us to reach our goal of 150 coats by November 30, 2017.
Please note: While we are glad to accept your gently used hoodies, fleeces, and other lightweight jackets, these items do not qualify for the 15% coupon. Heavier, gently used, warm winter coats will help the most during the harsh winter weather.
