Journey’s End seeks clothing donations

 Refugees who resettle on the West Side and throughout the rest of Buffalo are forced to adjust as winter weather approaches.
 Development Coordinator for Journey’s End Refugee Service, Brian Brown-Cashdollar said, “Many of our clients come from warm weather climates and don’t have any winter clothing when they arrive.”
  This is why Journey’s End is accepting donations of new and gently used winter apparel. About 150 winter coats are needed as well as gloves, hats, boots and scarves.
  Anyone looking to donate is asked to please call ahead at 716-882-4963. Donations can be dropped off at Journey’s End’s office at 2495 Main St., Suite 317.
