Emergency Winter Clothing Drive in Greenwich Needs Immediate Help

Screen Shot 2015-11-13 at 8.58.19 AMA note from organizers of the Clothing drive for Syrian refugees:
Local moms need your help! Strong men are urgently needed in Riverside this Saturday, November 14 from 8:00 am to 10:00 am to help us load a container of clothing donations for Syrian refugees. The organizers are given only TWO HOURS to load it all into a 40 ft container due to Homeland Security regulations.

There are a dozen moms helping but there’s no way they can do this alone. Please sign up here for 11/14 – plenty of volunteer spots are still available!


We’ve come so far and are THIS close to the goal, we are grateful for the overwhelming amount of support the community has given but we still need your help on this most important day.

Hundreds of families donated clothes, dozens of volunteers packed it all in at least 400 boxes (small & medium up to 20 lbs ea). Now we need all the volunteer help we can get to make sure all the donations make it on board!! Please join us, spread the word and we will ensure an ample supply of bagels, coffee and good cheer!

Please note the loading date and time has been moved up to November 14, from 8:00 am – 10:00 am sharp.
