York University Refugees Welcome Here: donate winter coat

On this time of the year


Finding warm clothing in the winter is a problem for vulnerable populations.
Many of our clients are in need of winter cloths: winter coats, sweatshirt, winter boots,etc.

We gratefully accept donations of winter clothing: Winter Coats; Boots; pants; Sleeping Bags, etc.

FCJ Refugee Centre thanks York University Refugees Welcome Here! campaign for supporting with the collection of winter cloth:

STARTING NOW! (Oct 23rd!)

As part of the York University Refugees Welcome Here! campaign we are collecting coats and winter clothing to support local immigrants and refugees at the FCJ Refugee Centre to (literally!) help give a warmer welcome to our community.

We are also tabling to raise awareness of refugee issues and invite students to join this campaign. WUSC York – Keele, Amnesty International at York (AIY), York University Syria Response and Refugee Initiative and Islamic Relief at York University are collaborating and helping with the collection of these coats.

Coats may be dropped off at Room 107, McLaughlin College OR McLaughlin College Council or when the respective organizations are tabling until December 5th.
