The Islamic and Turkish Studies – North Carolina, IITS-NC, is organizing a “blanket drive” to help Syrian families in Turkey.
As you know there are more than a million Syrian refugees in Turkey. Many of these families are living without any shelter or in tents. As the winter is approaching refugee families suffer badly in cold weather.
A small donation could help these families significantly.
We accept both gently used blankets and monetary donations.
The blanket drive will continue until November 22. Please deliver them clean and folded (No sheets please). Our goal is to fill several shipping containers that will then be delivered to Turkey, where a local relief agency will distribute them to the refugee families.
We ask that donations of blankets be made no later than 12:00 PM, November 22 to ensure they are delivered in time for the winter weather.
Please contact us by emailing to firstname.lastname@example.org before delivering the blankets so we can coordinate the date/time of the delivery.
