Bay Area Sends Blankets

Sponsored by:

Dozens of Bay Area volunteers have gathered blankets and are preparing to send them to refugee camps along the

border of Afghanistan.

It´s part of an effort by the Afghan Coalition, a grassroots group looking to support Afghans displaced by the military actions in their country.

The blankets will be trucked to Philadelphia then sent by cargo

ship across the Atlantic and finally trucked through Pakistan to the border of Afghanistan.

Winter in Afghanistan can reach sub-zero temperatures.
