Afghans for Afghans: Race to the Finish

October 21st, 2009

Pin It

Afghans for Afghans needs help filling 30-40 cartons with wool blankets, sweaters, vests, mittens, socks, and hats.  There is just over a week left until the October 29 deadline for their campaign to warm the youth of Afghanistan!  A week is just enough time to whip up a hat, scarf, or mittens (for ages 7-14) and send them to the afghans for Afghans’ San Francisco collection center.  The packages must arrive at the collection center no later than October 29 so that the donated items get to Afghanistan in time for winter.  Challenge yourself to finish a garment for Afghan youth!
