As winter approaches and we pull out our warm garments to protect ourselves from the harsh weather conditions, it is important to remember that there are many who face the impending cold without adequate resources to shield themselves. The unfortunate reality is that the forthcoming winter is predicted to be extremely challenging for the people of Ukraine, a country grappling with complex humanitarian crises.
To help alleviate the sufferings of those most vulnerable, Hope for Ukraine is once again organizing a Winter Clothing Drive from September 20 to November 1, 2023, inviting compassionate individuals and organizations to join hands in this noble endeavor.
- Host: Hope for Ukraine
- Date: September 20 to November 1, 2023
- Location: Extra Space Storage – 37 Vreeland Rd, Florham Park, NJ 07932
What Can You Donate?
This initiative aims to collect vital items that would grant warmth and succor to those bracing for a tough winter. We are seeking:
- Gently used winter clothing: From sweaters to gloves, your used winter apparel can become a source of warmth for someone in need.
- Hygiene products: Help maintain cleanliness and prevent disease by donating hygiene products.
- First aid medical supplies: Your donation of medical supplies can be life-saving.
- Non-perishable canned food: Hunger doesn’t stop when the temperature drops. Non-perishable foods can be a lifeline for families in crisis.
To facilitate efficient sorting and distribution, all donations must be boxed and labelled clearly indicating the contents.
