Donate new winter accessories, coats for homeless students

New York Teacher

Help take the chill out of winter for homeless children in New York City’s schools by donating new winter gear in the fourth annual clothing drive organized by the UFT Middle School Division. The union is collecting new winter coats and accessories, such as sweaters, scarves, mittens, gloves and hats. Only new articles of clothing can be accepted. The garments may range in size from toddler to adult. Ask your chapter leader if your school has organized a clothing drive. You can also drop off donations on your own before Nov. 17 at any UFT borough office or at UFT headquarters, 52 Broadway, 14th floor. If you have questions, please contact Mika Charles at
