A Cold Weather Appeal 

A Cold Weather Appeal from The Church of the Advocate

An Appeal from the Church of the Advocate / The Red Door Ministry


The Church of the Advocate serves up to 100 people each week who are "sleeping rough" or are struggling to make ends meet. As cold weather approaches we appeal to the Diocese of WNC congregations to join us in this ministry by collecting the following items. We will be glad to come to your church to pick up items or you can drop them off at Trinity Church, 60 Church Street, Asheville, 828-253-9361.
Want to contribute but don't have any of these items? Consider donating directly to our Cold Weather Appeal.  Follow this link and use the arrow drop down on the General Fund line to select "Cold Weather Appeal":  https://onrealm.org/ChurchtheAdvoca/-/give/now
Please join us in extending warmth and care to those most in need!
