"Additionally, we seek items for men, women, and children in all sizes, including clean long-sleeve tops and T-shirts, hoodie sweatshirts, winter boots, leggings, jeans, pajamas for men and women in all sizes, children's pajamas in sizes 6 to 20, boys jackets in all sizes. Socks, belts, underwear & undershirts, slippers, sneakers, winter hats, gloves, and scarves, bras, onesies, snowsuits, and sweaters for all are much needed."
