“Just a Little Warmer” Clothing Drive at The Bronx Museum Provides Winter Accessories for Those in Need

I am so happy to announce that I am hosting my first clothing drive, Just a Little Warmer at The Bronx Museum of the Arts  on Saturday December 12 and Sunday December 13 (11 AM – 6 PM on both days)!

As a native New Yorker, I’ve witnessed too many homeless people suffer the brutal NYC winter wearing just a coat but no hat, gloves, scarf, or socks. It sure would be nice to help them  feel just a little warmer.

The drive will be held during the museum’s Holiday Market Weekend, so there will be a lot of shopping, community building, and holiday cheer!

Just a Little Warmer aims to aid the numerous coat drives within the city. This clothing drive, generously hosted by The Bronx Museum of the Arts, encourages the community to give the small yet essential items needed for the coming cold weather.
Clean and gently used or new donations are greatly appreciated:
– socks
-gloves
-hats
-scarves
-thermal wear
-tights
-undershirts
– sweaters
– turtlenecks
– earmuffs
-anything helpful winter clothing or accessory

Gratitude for donations will be expressed through offered refreshments and a raffle holiday gift for one special supporter.  😀

All donations will be given to The Bowery Mission located in downtown Manhattan and SAMMON Build located in the Bronx. Please come and support Saturday and/or Sunday December 12-13 between 11am-6pm at The Bronx Museum of the Arts located at 1040 Grand Concourse, Bronx, NY 10456-3999.
