The Turkish Cultural Center in Greenburgh is participating in a blanket and coat drive organized by Embrace Relief.
Embrace Relief is a nonprofit organization that brings together teams of volunteers to collaborate on humanitarian aid and disaster relief efforts.
These teams provide an array of support, offering to assist financially, emotionally and physically with the needs of families and communities ravaged by disaster. The foundation collects, delivers and distributes supplies and resources to families, individuals and institutions.
The Turkish Cultural Center of Westchester is making an effort to collect blankets and coats for refugees who have fled Syria for Turkey due to the violence in Syria. The effort is to help Syrian refugee families in need during the harsh winter weather that will soon be upon them.

To make monetary donations, note that the cost of a blanket is $8 in the region. The Turkish Cultural Center is grateful for donations and support for this humanitarian effort.
