Attention friends in Westchester County!
The Westchester Refugee Initiative (WRI), coordinated by Hearts & Homes for Refugees, is a network of more than 40 groups and many volunteers that welcome refugees. Together with Neighbors for Refugees, we are co-hosting our annual Winter Drive to provide warm coats and snow boots to refugee and asylee families in Westchester and the tri-state area.
Saturday, October 3, 9am-5pm,
St. John’s Episcopal Church
4 Fountain Square in Larchmont
In 2019 we served over 450 refugees. This year, many families are facing extra hardship due to the pandemic, and we anticipate more needs than ever. We need your help!
Donate Winter Coats & Boots ONLY please.
We cannot accept other clothing items.
Don’t have a warm coat or pair of boots to donate?
Gift cards to Burlington or Target are also welcome!
Volunteers needed! October 3-5
We will need help October 3 for receiving and sorting, October 4 for packing and October 4/5 for deliveries. Here is the volunteering sign-up sheet
