WNYMuslims Presents Second Annual Winter Drive

WNYMuslims is proud to announce its Second Annual Winter Drive! After an extremely successful drive last year, WNYMuslims is hoping to recreate our success with Vive Inc., an organization which provides refugees with food, clothing, shelter and other services.

They are in dire need of winter jackets and winter accessories such as gloves, hats, boots, sweaters, scarves, blankets and more. Give back this cold winter by assisting WNYMuslims in donating these items to the many refugees in need! We are also accepting monetary donations online at wnymuslims.org/donate.

The winter drive will run until January 31st, 2014
