Donations and Volunteers Needed to Help Migrants in NYC

The following groups are hosting toy drives for migrant children and are also collecting warm clothes for asylum seekers living in city shelters.

Mutual aid groups, nonprofits, and city officials have coordinated efforts with neighbors in their communities to collect and provide essential services to asylum seekers and New Yorkers in need. Among the services they offer are clothing drives, food pantries, referrals for city programs, and more. They aim to support asylum seekers at New York City shelters by collaborating with New Yorkers eager to help the newest members of their community.

What other organizations are helping migrants in NYC?

Additionally, many other organizations across the city are currently conducting donation drives to aid asylum seekers and those in need during the winter and holiday season. To find your local mutual aid group and/or representative, refer to the National List of Mutual Aids in NYC based on zip code

Each mutual aid group has its own programs, so it’s advisable to call in advance to learn the best way to get involved. 

Also, seek out your local representative to inquire about clothing drives and other programs held at their offices
