On Monday, August 28, 2017, from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., the Benderson Family Foundation will sponsor the purchase of a coat and backpack from Burlington Coat Factory in Cheektowaga for each of about 50 "New American" children and teens resettled through the JFS Immigrant and Refugee program.
Children and adolescents from other JFS program areas also will be included in this wonderful show of generosity.
JFS will provide transportation for the children and their parents -- who are from Iraq, Burma, Somalia and Syria -- from its offices at 70 Barker Street in Buffalo to the Burlington store on Walden Avenue.
