In conjunction with our satellite dinners around Chicagoland we will also be collecting warm clothing for Refugee and Immigrant Services of Heartland Alliance.
Key needs include:
- coats for toddlers through young adults.
- coats for adults, particularly for women and smaller sizes because the dominant source of refugees this year are from Burma, Iraq and Bhutan.
- gloves and hats, particularly for men.
- long underwear and sweaters.
- winter boots.
We are also looking for a volunteer from each of the dinner sites to
collect the donated items and take them to Heartland Alliance at 4411 North Ravenswood. Please contact Kat O’Brien if you’d like to volunteer — katmobriengmailcom (volunteer--katmobriengmailcom) .
