The Afghan family we’ve been fundraising for, has settled into their new home and they are very appreciative of all that has been done for them by the Winchester Interfaith Committee. Members of the Neighborhood Support Team are working hard to meet the family’s needs, both in terms of support and home furnishings. Their apartment is a tight fit for seven people, but they have identified a few specific items that would be useful and appreciated: If you’d like to help, here’s list of items that would make them more comfortable in their new home:

  • A standing coat rack for front hall
  • A thermos carafe for tea that holds 8-10 cups
  • 3 covers for pans that are 8 inches, 10 inches and 12 inches
  • 6.9 qt. cast aluminum Caldero (Dutch oven) with lid ($20 at Target)
  • A large outdoor toy bin
  • A free-standing outdoor bike rack
  • Bike locks

If you have any of the items to donate, please take a photo of the item(s) and send it to Reva Shapiro at revashapiro-at-gmail-dot-com or 908-229-6336. (If you are willing to purchase any of them, please let Reva know that as well.) If the item meets their needs and hasn’t already been donated, you can deliver it to one of two  drop-off locations in Winchester or Arlington. We will keep this list updated to the best of our ability… thank you!
