It’s cold outside and Afghan refugees in the Harrisburg, PA area are in dire need of winter clothing. Will you donate or help collect these items? Items needed are new or gently used coats, hats, gloves, scarves and socks of all sizes. We ask that donated items please be clean with no tears, holes, missing buttons, or broken zippers. The deadline to donate or collect these items is December 19 by noon.
