Each year the Jericho Road Community Health Center organizes a winter clothing drive in order to provide the necessary threads for low income families and refugees so that they can handle the cold and snow. That means that they need your help, to provide mothers and fathers, young adults, kids and babies with a variety of clothing including winter coats, gloves, scarves, hats, boots, and even blankets. For many, this will be the first winter they will ever experience, and that means that they are most likely unprepared for what’s to come.
The annual outerwear drive is called Bundle Up Buffalo (BUB). Jericho Road is depending on the community to step up and help the refugees out. Many people have an abundance of winter clothing. Maybe the styles are a bit off. Maybe your kids have outgrown last year’s winter threads. No matter the reason, it’s important that those without the proper clothing get suited up in time for the snow to fly. See if you can help them out?
