Syrian Refugee Blanket Drive

Starting this month through November 22nd, in coordination with the Help Syrian Refugees Organization, there will be a blanket drive for Syrian Refugess seeking shelter in Southern Turkey. Those interested in helping are asked to donate either new or gently used blankets, cleaned and folded, to one of the many drop off locations in Northern Virginia, which can be found here. They ask that only blankets are donated and not sheets, and you can also make a monetary contribution if you wish, which will be used to help purchase blankets and other items. The goal of this drive is to fill as many shipping containers as possible which will then be delivered to Turkey where a local relief agency will distribute them to refugee families.
