2020 Warm Coat, Blanket, and Shoe Drive Center for Refugee Services

October 11-13th Resurgent Church.

8134 Fredericksburg Dr.

We want to thank each of you for your support of the Center for Refugee Services’ work to provide our newest neighbors to San Antonio seasonal needs. This year we were surprised with a cool morning on September 10th, the earliest ever.

In August, we collected items to provide for about 350 backpacks. Many students are not actually going into the classroom yet, but they will be soon, and we want them ready for those cold trips to the bus stop in the morning. 

We will now be collecting new and gently used coats, blankets, and shoes for our newest arrivals. Children’s items will be most appreciated as children grow each year. We will also accept warm sweaters, sweatshirts, long pants, and accessories (scarves, gloves, hats, new socks, etc.) We ask for no lightweight/ summer items. We thank you for your assistance!
