UNIQLO, the global clothing retailer, will join Canarsie Recovery Center at the Holy Roman Catholic Church in Brooklyn, NY, to deliver warm clothing donations to hundreds of individuals and families affected by Sandy this Saturday.
This is the eighth stop of UNIQLO’s “United in Warmth” relief program that will visit 10 communities in NY and NJ hit hardest by Sandy to bring warm clothing donations to families during this winter. UNIQLO will bring 30 volunteers to Brooklyn including their own employees and executives, and volunteers who signed up through UNIQLO’s website to donate their time. In the 10 weeks, the company will distribute 100,000 HEATTECH clothing items and 10,000 Premium Ultra Light Down coats valued at close to $2.3 million. Interested volunteers can sign-up on UNIQLO.com.
UNIQLO is partnering with the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City, the New York City Housing Authority, the NYC Department of Youth and Community Development, the State of New Jersey and the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund.
