Hi, my name is Stephanie and I volunteer with an organization called Contracovid.
Currently, migrants from Venezuela and other surrounding countries have been forced to relocate from their home countries and are being placed in shelters in New York and other cities. Many of the families belongings were taken at the border, and they currently lack basic necessities such as clothing and food.
Members of the organization Contracovid and myself are collaborating with mutual aid groups and are requesting donations to give directly to the families. We are putting together boxes of clothing, shoes, blankets, etc. The monetary donations that are collected from this gofundme will be used to purchase clothing and other physical resources families may need to survive the winter.
Winter clothing/shoes (coats, socks, boots, sweaters, snow shoes, thermal underclothes)
Unused toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss, deodorant, soap, conditioner, shampoo
*Please be sure to clean all clothing and blankets before donating.
If you or anyone you know would like to donate winter clothing, please reach out to us on our website (Contracovid.com)
