donations needed for south, soldiers
Provided there is no ceasefire, I’ll be going down south on Thursday to help bring donations of supplies needed by residents there who have not been able to leave shelters to get to the store for days and those who are sheltering in sub-standard conditions. I bought 5 fuzzy throw blankets at 10 sheks each for those in shelters and 9 pairs of warm socks for our soldiers in need today and added them to the neighbourhood collection. We’ve also got a lot of soldiers and reservists who don’t have family here to make sure they’ve got some of those basic things and many others who can’t afford to provide them with all they need.
There are a lot of donation drives going on (I also donated 50 sheks to the one at school for supplies) and I ask that if you are here and can afford it, please find one in your local area and donate. Below is the list of items we were told was needed:
Folks in shelters need primarily:
Packaged food items that don’t need to be cooked
Cup of soups, instant coffee, tea etc (just add hot water)
Toiletries (toothpaste, deodorant, disposable razors, shaving cream)
*And don’t forget, we do have girls down there on the front line and there tends to be a dearth of donated items fit for the girls in need.
