During the hustle and bustle of the holidays it is easy to forget what the season is really all about. For some the holidays are not a time for family, food and gifts but for battling the cold weather and hunger.
This year the Newport Cottages family is teaming up with The Pancake Ministry to help these families in need and try make their holidays a bit brighter. The Pancake Ministry began with one young man making breakfast for the homeless in San Diego and has grown in to a large group who gather every Saturday morning, rain or shine to make pancakes and hand out items to those in need. Among their regular recipients are families with small children, pregnant women, war veterans, young women with babies and homeless teens. Through kindness and dedication the members of The Pancake Ministry have been able to provide food, clothing and even financial assistance for schooling to these individuals.
Now-December 31st, Newport Cottages Fashion Island will be collecting NEW and GENTLY used clothing, toys, blankets & gifts for the families served by the Pancake Ministry. The items most in need are socks, blankets, warm clothing and personal care items. As a thank you, everyone who donates will receive an exclusive coupon for their next in store purchase.
Newport Cottages Fashion Island 401 Newport Center Drive, Suite A225 Newport Beach, CA 92660
The Newport Cottages family will be joining The Pancake Ministry to distribute the donated items and serve breakfast this Saturday, December 20th at 9am. If you would like to join our family we will be at 325 Park Blvd San Diego CA 92101.
We’d love to see you there!
