For many years, AOSR has been an active supporter of the Joel Nafuma Refugee Center located in the center of Rome in St. Paul's within the Walls church in the heart of Rome. It is our hope that you will join us again this spring by contributing to our collection drive to support the current migrant crisis.
Please consider making donation of items from the wish list: new clothing items (men's socks and underwear), personal hygiene items (soap, lotion, toothbrushes, razors, tissues, etc.), and gently used men's clothes (shorts, pants, t-shirts, jackets, shoes, sweatshirts, backpacks, raincoats), as well as sleeping bags and blankets. Other items which are needed include used cell phones with chargers, notebooks, pens and pencils.
There will be 3 donation locations for the Spring Needed Item drive at AOSR (outside of the ES library, on the second floor of the Villa and the entrance to the HS). We plan to conclude our drive by Friday, May 4.
We hope that you will contribute to our AOSR initiative to support refugees here in Rome. More details can be found on the JNRC center's Wish List on the website.
