Seeking warm clothing for asylum seekers in Orange County detention centers.

We are working with a team of people helping asylum seekers to get out of detention in Orange County and resettle with their sponsors, usually in the Midwest or East Coast.

They are usually young men, sometimes women, fleeing from dangerous countries to the U.S. who are stopped at the border or at the airport without entry visas, etc, and held in detention in Orange County until their cases are heard in court and they are given the official residency documents as asylum seekers.

Needed for men:

  • Used jackets, sizes small or medium. These can be very warm or somewhat warm.  
  • Athletic shoes / winter shoes or boots
  • Winter hats and gloves
  • New underwear and socks

For women:

  • Jackets (but only very warm ones)
