Give Now: Cold Weather Clothing Drive for Migrants Bussed to NYC

By September 30, 2022 November 7th, 2022 No Comments

As you may have seen in the news, right-wing politicians in southern border states like Texas are bussing migrants and asylum seekers to NYC. These men, women and children have been arriving in the vicinity of Port Authority with nothing–notably without the clothing needed to face winter here in NYC. Society Ethical Action Committee member Leslie Aspis, a FEMA trained first responder, recently met the buses with the NYPD as part of an emergency response team, and confirmed the desperate need for warm clothing.

To do our part, Ethical NYC is collecting coats, sweaters, hats, scarves and gloves of all sizes to help our new neighbors stay warm while they wait for their cases to be processed. Please check your closets and consider donating any gently used items you may have. Items can be dropped off in our lobby during normal hours (9:00am-6:00pm) or brought to our weekly Sunday Platform gatherings (11:00am).

Please forward this post to your family and friends, and together let’s make this a warm welcome!
