Blanket Drive for Syrian Refugees

×We raised $1860 for 186 blankets in around 3 weeks.

Atlas Foundation joined the relief effort by Embrace Relief to help Syrian refugees right around Thanksgiving. We invited Louisianans to contribute to the “Blanket Drive” to help Syrian refugees in Turkey before it got too cold. The tragedy of Syrian refugees is indescribable. Since winter is harsh, the most urgent need for them are blankets.
