It is time for our annual winter coat collection for IRIS (Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services in New Haven). This year, IRIS, working with the federal government, is particularly challenged by the influx of immigrants & refugees, coming from Afghanistan.
Last year, we brought two carloads filled to capacity! Let’s break the record this year!
Large boxes marked, “Winter Coats for Refugees”, will be in both the St. Matthew and St. Bernard Church Halls through the month of October. IRIS is asking for only heavy winter coats and boots (new or gently used) for both adults and children. No other winter clothing is requested at this time.
Thank you, in advance, for your generous response! Questions, please call Carol at (860) 268-0966.
