STATEWIDE — As winter approaches, Hoosiers are asked to consider donating clothing and infant supplies to help Afghan evacuees at Camp Atterbury.
Thousands of evacuees are at Camp Atterbury and with cold weather on the way, new coats and warm clothes, along with baby and hygiene items, are needed. More than 40% of the population at Camp Atterbury is under the age of 14.
New items are accepted from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday at these Indiana National Guard armories:
- Evansville: 3300 E. Division St.
- Greenfield: 410 Apple St.
- Terre Haute, 3614 Maple Ave.
- Danville: 1245 E. Main St.
- Muncie: 401 N. Country Club Road
- Indianapolis: Kessler-Moore Readiness Center, 2625 W. Kessler Blvd. North Drive
- Fort Wayne: 130 W. Cook Road
- South Bend: 1901 Kemble Ave.
- New Albany: 2909 Grant Line Road
In addition to cold-weather clothing of all sizes, these items are being accepted at armories because they are needed the most. The items should be in their original packaging:
- Men’s and women’s unbranded, modest clothes such as long sleeve t-shirts, underwear, pants, and jackets in sizes small to large. No shorts or tank tops.
- Children’s clothing, including baby and newborn clothes, hats, and socks
- Powdered baby formula
- Socks, hats, shoes, and slide-on sandals (no flip flops) for evacuees of all ages
Anyone wishing to donate items through Team Rubicon can find more information here.
