Bundle Up Buffalo
Jericho Road Community Health Center will hold its annual winter outerwear drive on Saturday, October 21 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Our Lady of Hope (18 Greenwood Place, Buffalo, NY 14213). This event primarily serves Jericho Road’s refugee client base that arrive in Western New York unprepared for our famous winters. (Some of these clients will be experiencing snow for the very first time!)
How Can I Help?
1. Spread the word about Bundle Up Buffalo by telling your friends, family, co-workers, and faith community. Learn more about the drive at http://www.jrchc.org/help/events.
2. Collect the following new or gently used winter items: coats, boots, scarves, gloves, mittens, hats, and blankets. (For coats and boots, all child and smaller adult sizes are most in demand.)
3. Sign up to volunteer on Friday, October 20 for set-up and organizing and/or Saturday, October 21 for distribution. Register to volunteer at http://www.jrchc.org/help/volunteer/bundle-up-buffalo-130/.
