Catholic Charities needs winter clothing for new refugees

Catholic Charities Migration and Refugee Services is seeking winter coats and blankets, as well as other winter items — gloves, hats and scarves — for its 850 or so refugee clients who were resettled in Louisville this year. Nearly all of the clients came from a tropical or desert environment, so in nearly all cases this coming winter will be their first taste of cold weather, a news release from Catholic Charities noted.

Warm clothing and blankets should be new or gently used and are needed for all ages and both sexes. Items can be dropped off at Migration and Refugee Services at 2220 W. Market St. from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

For additional information about the refugee program and additional needs, call Chris Clements, community resource developer for Catholic Charities, at 636-9263, ext. 125, or reach him by email at cclements@archlou.org.
