When winter rolls around, for the needy and homeless, it’s like the flowers bloom no more. To them, it feels like the oceans reduce to lakes. As we sit at home, sipping on hot chocolate, wrapping ourselves with a warm blanket and watching re-runs of ‘Friends’ on TV, the needy search the streets looking for shelter, clothing and food.
It’s getting cold outside, and there are people in our community who are in desperate need of warm clothing. In the spirit of the holidays, we are collecting.
What do you do with your old clothes? What’s old for us is a basic necessity for some. If getting rid of clothing, DONATE is the word to remember. Homeless people and low income families need all types of gently used clothing, particularly warm clothes and coats for cold weather, formal clothes (to attend job interviews), kids' clothing (they grow out of them so fast!), and shoes (which frequently wear out).
Remember that every little bit helps. Then again, once you've got people inspired, you'll be amazed at the difference your used clothing donation drive can make.
Like every year, the ITHS Girls Section Uttara is organizing a ‘Winter Donation’ for the homeless and needy people. Drop your clothes for a great cause! A designated box can be found on each floor for donating your clothes and it we would be pleased to know that people are willing to help the needy.
