Summer Clothing & Shoes Drive for Migrant Families
Are you looking for ways to help support migrant families in DC? Join Catholic Charities on June 17th for a Summer Clothing and Shoes Drive!
Over the past year, thousands of migrant families have been bussed from the Southern Border to the District of Columbia. Catholic Charities Archdiocese of Washington D.C. is providing 372 families (comprised of over 1,300 people) of newly arrived migrants with basic necessities and shelter. Half of these people are children. Many families arrived in D.C. with only the clothes on their backs and very few other personal belongings.
As the seasons rapidly transition to Summer, there is an obvious need we can all help to address: access to Summer clothing and shoes.
On June 17th, from 10am-2pm at Anchor Mental Health (1001 Lawrence St NE, Washington DC 20017), Catholic Charities ADW will be hosting a Summer Clothes and Shoes Drive. Any donation of new clothing or shoes, no matter how big or small, will make a difference.
