Volunteers helped outfit children with donated coats, pants, shoes, and more.

Some volunteers say it was a humbling experience.

“To get some clothes, hygiene, shoes…things that they usually don’t get like how we’re privileged. We’re trying to give them a chance to get the things we have everyday,” said Kalkidan Dereje.

All items were free-of-charge for refugee families.

The families are being treated by Denver Health at its refugee clinic in the Lowry Community Health Center.
