Winter Clothing Drive
Nearly 400 coats and lots of hats, scarves, gloves and boots were collected for our Winter Clothing Drive! These items will help refugees stay protected this winter. Refugees arrive to Chicago with little more than the clothes on their backs. Often coming from refugee camps in warm climates, many only have t-shirts, shorts and sandals to protect them from the elements. As the chilling wind begins whipping off Lake Michigan, they turn to RefugeeOne for warm winter clothing.
Your donations are important for keeping the refugees we resettle protected from the frightfully chilly temperatures. They also ensure that refugees need not stop receiving services, attending classes or searching for jobs due to the weather. Thank you for your generous support.
