Joseph’s Coat of Central Ohio provides clothing, household goods, and furniture to those in need in our community. We work with over 20 organizations around the Columbus area to assist our needy families, including Catholic Social Services, H.E.A.R.T. Food Pantry, Lutheran Social Services, and The Open Shelter.  This is an ecumenical effort. St. Pius X volunteers work in partnership with Eastpointe Christian Church, Messiah Lutheran, Parkview Presbyterian, Peace Lutheran Church, Reynoldsburg United Methodist Church, and St. Matthew the Apostle Catholic Church. For more information about Joseph's Coat, or to become involved as a volunteer in this ecumenical ministry that helps people become self-sustaining through material assistance, please use our form below to contact us.
