Help us raise money for winter coats!

Fun Club Coat Drive

Fun Club Coat Drive

Welcome Home will host its annual winter clothing drive in conjunction with Jersey City Fun Club on Thursday, November 1. Fun Club is a new program that provides a foundation for success through ESL tutoring for adults and homework help for kids, as well as a place for refugee families and volunteers to build community by sharing meals and participating in group activities such as music or dance. We meet three Thursdays per month, and provide transportation to all participants.

The primary goal of our clothing drive this year is to be able to purchase new coats for the 60 children enrolled in Fun Club, at an average cost of $45 per coat. New coats will be purchased at Costco and other local discount stores. All donations are tax-deductible. In addition to raising funds for new coats, we will also collect gently used coats, hats, gloves, scarves, boots and other cold-weather items for both children and adults.
