WNYMuslims is conducting its second annual winter drive with Vive Inc., which provides refugees with food, clothing, shelter and other services.

The winter drive runs until Jan. 31, and there are two drop-off locations: Vive at 50 Wyoming Ave., and WNYMuslims office at 4011 Bailey Ave., Amherst.

There is a dire need for winter jackets and gloves, hats, boots, sweaters, scarves, blankets and more. Monetary donations also are being accepted online at wnymuslims.org/donate.

The organization thanks the community in advance for helping to improve the lives of the refugee community in the greater Buffalo area. WNYMuslims encourages the community to call ahead before dropping off donations. The phone number for its Amherst office is 923-4386.
