Winter is just around the corner. Many refugees resettled by our organization are from regions of warm climate and arrive in Chicago with no winter apparel. We are collecting outerwear--hats, gloves, scarves, coats and boots--for males and females of all ages to help prepare them for their first Chicago winter.
