The generosity of Union City residents and businesses is overwhelming.  The city has experienced the devastation of property loss three times over since early February, when a blaze on the 1000 block of Bergenline Avenue destroyed businesses and homes leaving approximately 50 people homeless.

The community began donating clothing.  Items for men, women and children kept coming in for the families, so Union City was able to distribute the clothing to families in need.  That was two months ago, but the donations never stopped.  Items kept coming in.

The city decided that it would distribute the clothes this coming Sunday, April 16 at the William Musto Cultural Center on 15th Street, beginning at 11 am.

Then tragedy struck again, with two devastating fires the past 48 hours in Union City.  Families have been invited to come and select the items they want.

Union City spokeswoman Liliana Barrera says the clothes have been cleaned and separated by size. They’ve been folded or hung by gender.   They will be available between 11 am and 3 pm on Sunday.
