Moroccan Consulate in NYC Collects Clothes for the Poor in the Atlas Mountains

Here is an interesting announcement posted on the Consulate General of Morocco in NYC's website. It appears that today is the last day of a drive to collect clothes for poor families in the Atlas Mountains in Morocco.

AWESOME NEWS! Clothing drive for needy families in Morocco now through Saturday, February 25, 2012.

After a very successful clothing drive in Astoria and Brooklyn, Moroccan Americans in NY/Marocains Unis will organize the last day of collection to fill up a 40' container.

We will be conducting this last round of the clothing drive to help the needy families in the Atlas mountains. We ask you to reach into your hearts and your closets and give as much as you can. Arrangements have already been made for the storage, transport, and distribution of the items to those in need. All that is required is the product!

The items that are needed most are: coats, socks, hats, gloves, shoes, blankets, an other warm clothing for all ages, infant through adult...Anything you can give will be greatly appreciated..

Members of the group will be located this Saturday, February 25th at the corner of 25th Ave and 41 Street in Astoria, Queens from 10:30am-5:30pm. Its only one block from Steinway Street.

We hope to see you there! PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD!!!!
