Winter Clothing & Gear  Needed in Lowell, Boston, and Manchester, NH

The oncoming winter brings new challenges to some IINE refugee and immigrant clients, many of whom are unused to the cold weather in New England. We are appealing to our community to help the people we support in Manchester, NH, Boston and Lowell to stay warm this winter.  You can help by donating warm winter clothes, children’s items, hats, coats, gloves, and other winter gear.

If you’d like to buy a item, we recommend the styles below. But as with all our recommended links, feel free to get a similar one if these are unavailable! In most cases, we also accept gently used items, too. 

If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Michele Ross (mross@iine.org) or call 617.695.9990

Thank you for your generosity.
