BronxWorks hoping for donations for the winter, shutdown

Posted: Updated:
THE BRONX -

The holiday season is over, but BronxWorks is hoping to still feel the effects of giving from those who can in the borough.

News 12 The Bronx is donating more than two dozen jackets to BronxWorks. The human service organization says it still needs much more to help others this winter.

BronxWorks says it has more than 700 people registered at its food pantry, and with the government shutdown, it suspects many more people in the borough will need assistance.

BronxWorks is accepting monetary donations as well to help stock up the food pantry, since it cannot accept actual food.
