Hearts & Homes For Refugees Coat & Boot Drive

October 3, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Westchester Refugee Initiative (WRI) is coordinated by Hearts & Homes and is a network of more than 40 groups and many volunteers that welcome refugees.  Two members of the WRI – Hearts & Homes for Refugees and Neighbors for Refugees – are hosting the annual Winter Drive to provide warm coats and snow boots to refugee and asylee families in Westchester and the tri-state area. In 2019 we served over 450 refugees. This year, many families are facing extra hardship due to the pandemic, and we anticipate more needs than ever. We need your help!
