HELP NEEDED! 
 
BLANKET DRIVE!

Dear Friends,

Turkish American Society of Michigan, Balkan American Community Center, City of Troy and City of Westland are pleased to announce their participation in a blanket drive organized by Embrace Relief.

It is an effort to collect blankets for refugees who have fled Syria and Iraq for Turkey due to the erupting violence in Syria and Iraq. The effort is to help Syrian and Iraqi refugee families in need during the harsh winter months what will soon be upon them.

Last year, 18,000 blankets were collected and shipped to Turkey. Since 2013, the crisis in Syria has only grown worse with now more than one million Syrian refugees living in Turkey alone. Refugee camps have outgrown their capacity and refugees are surviving on makeshift shelters in border cities. Now, with further unrest in the area, Iraqi refugees have started fleeing to Turkey causing the amount of people in dire need to multiply by the thousands on a regular basis.

Turkish American Society of Michigan is participating in this aid program with monetary donation and by collecting the blankent at several drop off locations. In order to transport blankets on time for the upcoming winter, the drive will be run between November 4, 2014 and November 22, 2014. Please see below for the drop off locations. You may also go on to http://embracerelief.org/syrian-refugees/ if you want to make monetary donations. Please note that cost of a blanket is $10 in the region.

Please remember that every dollar donated counts.

Turkish American Society of Michigan is grateful for your donations and support for this humanitarian effort.

Sincerely,
Turkish American Society of Michigan
