Dear Friends in Mission,
The Wisconsin Conference is hosting an ingathering of clothing and blankets for the Afghan refugees currently housed at Fort McCoy. The process for Ingathering will be similar to recent Ingathering events. In each District several churches have agreed to be drop-off sites. Several churches will be both drop-off and pick-up sites. Gathered supplies can be dropped off at the drop-off sites from Monday, September 13th – Friday, September 24th. Drop-off sites must transfer all gathered supplies to a pick-up site by Tuesday, September 28th. Midwest Mission Distribution Center will be in Wisconsin on Wednesday and Thursday, September 29-30th to pick up the gathered supplies and deliver them to Fort McCoy. MMDC will contact the pick-up sites to indicate their time of arrival.
The link below will provide you with the most up-to-date list of supplies needed. New clothing items preferred, but gently used and laundered items are acceptable.
Churches may use the drop-site that is closest to your location. Drop-sites request that you call in advance before delivering supplies. The contact information is included with the site location in the link below.
