Message from the Director of the International Institute of New England (IINE) upon hearing that over 1000 winter    children's clothes had been collected......."Wow. This not only exceeds our expectations, but is incredibly timely. I was literally standing outside of our clothing closest on Thursday disappointing a refugee father because we didn't have a coat for his 4 year old daughter. This is a tremendous gift to our families.  I am...feeling so grateful to your youth and broader community."

Dec 15th update:
As a result of dedicated work of youth across the stake and the generosity of Ward families we were able to respond quickly to an urgent request for warm children's clothes. IINE called Tuesday night due to concerns about the cold arctic temperatures that were coming and we were able to provide clothes yesterday (Thurs). We delivered 103 coats, 44 snow pants/snow suits, 69 sweaters, 115 pairs of gloves, 49 pairs of boots and 50 scarves made at EFY for a day. The staff at IINE were so happy and grateful. These pictures show some of the 23 bags of clothes.

About

This event has changed it's location, time and purpose.  The state of Massachusetts had a calendar
miscue and scheduled two events on the same day for the Refugees.   We are still collecting clothing but the Refugees will not be present at this Dec 2nd event.   The event will be a service project as well as games and other activities.
