Voluntary :: Blanket Drive to help Syrian Refugees

Raleigh : 11-22-2014

IITS has organized 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 accepted both gently used blankets and monetary donations.
