This year, Los Alamos JJAB will once again be organizing a winter clothing project for youth in need. Youth, ages 5 – 18, that live or attend school in Los Alamos County will be provided winter coats, boots, gloves, scarves, and/or hats.
The JJAB Resource Specialists, Los Alamos Public School (LAPS) counselors, and other local organizations, such as Self-Help and LAC Victim Assistant, are working to identify needs and submit requests. Last year, generous donations supplied youth with items to keep warm all season long.
Donate new or “like-new” winter coats, boots, gloves, scarves, or hats. Donation bins will be available at Bethlehem Evangelical Lutheran Church until October 31st. The church is located at 2390 North Road, the donation bins will be set up at the side entrance adjacent to the parking lot. While any donation will assist youth, last year the largest need was for neutral color coats and boots for ages 6 to 10.
