THE CARING PLACE, 931 Hamilton St., Allentown, is holding its annual Warm Coats, Warm Hearts coat drive and is seeking children's, women's and men's new or used coats. Items may be dropped off at the center. Coats will be distributed to needy families. For information, call The Caring Place at 610-433-5683.
The City of Allentown, like cities across the country, has too many low-income, inner-city children who become victims of today’s urban problems. Poverty, single-parent families, gun violence, gang activity, low educational achievement, drug addiction, and teen pregnancy are among the serious issues these children face. This environment does not nurture children; but it does create a sense of hopelessness.
The Caring Place recognizes the need to take action to improve the quality of life of young people trapped in this vicious cycle of poverty, violence and neglect. Many have few support systems and no family structure. These children who “parent” their siblings, who have lost their own childhood, need options and opportunities.
The Caring Place and its host of volunteers are taking action now.
