CoFiA receives donation of children’s clothes

Some members of the Junior Seminar

This year more than 80 new children have been enrolled in the Palisades Park public schools.  The majority of them are from Central America, primarily Guatemala.  Fleeing from poverty and dangerous conditions, many arrive with few resources, including clothing.  In response to an appeal from CoFiA, young people in the Junior Seminar of the Unitarian Society of Ridgewood carried out a campaign to collect clothing for infants and young children.  The congregation responded with many bags of good, clean, practically new clothing.  We will be distributing them over the next several weeks. Our thanks to the Junior Seminar!
