Warm clothes drive for resettled ones in IL


The Unity Bank’s Edison branch and the Rotary Club of Edison have been coordinating a warm clothing drive for 40 resettled Bhutanese households that have recently relocated to the local community.

Clothes can be dropped off at Unity Bank, 1746 Oak Tree Road, Edison, through Feb. 15, mentioned Njtoday.net.

According to the report, the clothing drive started on Jan. 15 and some donors have elected to provide monetary donations in lieu of clothes. Checks made payable to the Rotary Club of Edison would also be collected by the bank for the drive.

“We strive to support the communities we serve in many different ways,” the report quoted Unity Bank President James A. Hughes as saying.

“We are pleased to be able to partner with the Rotary Club of Edison on this initiative to help some of the newest residents of our community. We hope local residents will lend a hand in making this difficult transition just a bit easier.”
