UFT Winter Coat and Holiday Toy Drives For Our City’s Children -- Donate, Please.
Because all children deserve a happy holiday
Holiday greetings, union family. I want to share two worthy causes being sponsored by the UFT with readers of ‘The Wire’. Please take a moment to donate to both.
From our UFT site:
Help take the chill out of winter for New York City students in need by making a donation to the UFT Middle School Division's coat drive.
Your monetary donation will go toward the purchase of new winter coats and accessories (scarves, mittens, gloves and hats) for New York City public school students living in temporary housing.
To donate online for the coat drive, click here.
You can also bring or ship your donations (we can only accept brand-new items) to:
UFT headquarters, attn: Richard Mantell, Middle School Division, 52 Broadway, New York, NY 10004.
You may also mail a check (made payable to UFT Middle School Thanksgiving Event) to the above address.
You can involve your school community by:
Organizing a winter coat drive (new coats only)
Organizing fundraiser activities
Collecting monetary donations
Organizing a penny drive
If you have any questions or concerns, contact Jeannette Noriega at email@example.com.
Share in the season of joy by donating a new, unwrapped toy for children from the ages of newborn to 16.*
