For the past few years the Union City Office of Community Relations has been conducting a Winter Coat Drive for needy students in the school district those families can’t afford to buy them a winter coat due to financial hardship. For a child, a brand new coat can be more than a coat – not only helps to keep him/her warm, but also can change a child’s life and empower him/her with greater self-confidence, peer acceptance, increase school attendance and overall wellness.
The City is asking residents to please contribute to this charitable drive by giving the GIFT OF WARMTH to its students in need by donating a brand new or gently used winter coat. The district also will be collecting scarves, gloves, socks, sweaters and hats. Your gift will have the ability to transform a child’s life and relay the message “YOU ARE WORTH IT”.
Donations will be collected at the entrance of the schools starting today, Monday, November 21st, 2022 through Friday, December 30th, 2022.
