In coordination with the Port Washington State Bank in Thiensville, the Milwaukee Muslim Women’s Coalition, Mequon Rotary Noon Club, Mequon Thiensville Sunrise Rotary, and Cedarburg Grafton Rotary we will be participating in a clothing drive to assist the 12,000 Afghan Refugees at Fort McCoy. The refugees at Fort McCoy have tremendous and urgent needs, as most fled with only the clothes they were wearing. 


Afghan Refugee NEW Clothing Drive. New winter clothing, jackets, sweaters, blouses, shirts, pants, long skirts, shoes, socks, underwear, toiletries, for adults and children all sizes. Hijab and mens tunics are also needed!


Will take place on Saturday, October 23 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Village Park in Thiensville located at 250 Elm Street. Please drop off new clothing only. If unavailable on October 23rd, please bring to our Friday morning club meetings and deliver to Bruce Carter. 

We need Rotary Volunteers from our club to cover shifts. 2-3 members per shift. Please let Bruce Carter know what shift you would like to cover ( Shifts are 10-1pm, 10-11am, 11-12pm, 12-1pm.
