On Friday, November 18, 2016 Cabrini Immigrant Services, NYC held its second annual coat drive at St. Teresa’s Church. It was a successful event that was led by staff and volunteers. Cabrini Immigrant Services provided over 130 families with new and gently used warm coats and jackets resulting in the distribution of 238 coats and jackets but also clothing, shoes, socks, hats and scarves to the immigrant community in preparation of the cold winter that is to come.
The event was filled with joy and excitement as many families and children expressed their gratitude to staff and volunteers for caring for the immigrant community and surrounding neighborhoods. Thank you to the donors, community groups, volunteers and parishes for making this amazing event happen and giving us the opportunity to show that we care for New York City. We look forward to the next coat drive!
