Sweaters for Syrian Refugee

October 6, 2013

Do you have some extra sweaters taking up space in your closet? See that they get put to good use by donating them to a man, woman or child in need of warmth this winter.

As the devastation of the Syrian civil war continues to unfold, refugees living at the Za’atari refugee camp in Jordan are bracing themselves for another harsh winter. A housing shortage, lack of appropriate clothing and a demanding climate can make life extremely difficult for families that have fled the violence. Canadian Lutheran World Relief will be dispatching a shipment to support Syrian refugees living in Jordan.

The goal is to gather 10,000+ new or gently used sweaters this fall and dispatch them in time for winter. Sweaters of all sizes are needed, for men, women and children.

Please drop your sweaters off to Clement Mehlman at the Dalhousie Multifaith Centre at 1321 Edward Street (next to the Law School) no later than October 27.
