Winter Clothing Appeal 2019
 
The Chiang Mai International Rotary Club is once again launching its annual “Children’s Winter Clothing Appeal.” We aim to collect warm winter clothes, and shoes and donate it to hill tribe and migrant children and youngsters throughout Northern Thailand.
 
The cold season can be tough on those sleeping rough or unable to afford proper clothing. We would like to offer a hand to those in desperate need of help and warmth.
 
 
What we need
 
  • Warm coats, jackets
  • Pullovers / sweatshirts / cardigans
  • Long-sleeve shirts and T-shirts
  • Scarves
  • Caps
  • Socks / warm tights
  • Closed-toe shoes and sneakers
 
If your kids have outgrown some of their winter clothes and they’re just sitting in the back of the cupboard unused and unloved, then you can take them to a donations drop-off point between October 15 – December 1, 2019. These winter items will make a massive difference to vulnerable people.
 
Donations drop-off points
 
  • Rimping Meechock Plaza / Promenada / Nawarat / Nim City / Mae Hia / Kad Farang / Maya
  • Chiang Mai International School
  • Lanna Intl School - Airport & North Hill
  • Prem Tinsulanonda International School
  • Varee Chiang Mai International School
  • Home Pro Hang Dong
  • Macro Hang Dong
  • The River Market Restaurant
  • Payap University
  • Pern's Restaurant
  • UN Irish Pub
 
 
No clothes are left behind
 
We will meticulously go through and sort the donated clothes and remove what’s damaged, dirty or not appropriate.
 
Any items that are not suitable for children will be donated to Free Bird Pre-Loved Charity Shop, so nothing goes to waste.
 
 
How else can you help
 
If you don't have any warm clothes to give but would still like to help, we welcome donations of blankets, stationery, school supplies, and toiletries as well. Also, we are happy to receive cash donations that we can use to purchase essential winter clothing items for those in need.
