Giving clothes to hundreds of new refugees in Denver metro

March 27, 2017

DENVER – The Denver Health Foundation gave a warm welcome — literally — to hundreds of refugees new to the area.

Sunday, the foundation gave more than 300 children — all patients at Denver Health's Lowry Family Health Center — warm clothes including coats, hats, gloves, jeans, shirts, shoes, socks and underwear.

It's part of the group's Refugee Outreach Clothing Kids program, also called R.O.C.K.

According to the organization, the refugees are from Burma, Syria, Congo, Nepal, Afghanistan, Somalia, Eritrea, Iraq, Ukraine and Ethiopia. They moved here with the help of the United States government and the United Nations.
