BROOKLYN, N.Y. — Brooklyn (N.Y.) Borough President Eric Adams and Deputy Brooklyn Borough President Diana Reyna recently joined the Korean Dry Cleaners Association of New York (KDCA) to donate clothing collected from all five boroughs to the New York City Department of Homeless Services (DHS).

DHS Assistant Commissioner Lisa Black accepted more than 2,000 pieces of unclaimed clothing collected by KDCA members, which will be distributed throughout Brooklyn and New York City to help the homeless stay warm this winter.

KDCA member dry cleaners can serve as drop-off locations for further donations.

“With the freezing temperatures outside, we are especially thankful that the Korean Dry Cleaners Association of New York and the Department of Homeless Services are partnering with Borough Hall to clothe those in need with over 2,000 articles of clothing,” says Adams. “Through events such as these, we continue to work to support our city’s homeless population. This shows how important volunteerism, and how one small donation can make a big difference for someone.”
