Wisconsin Adventist Community Services Gives Afghans a Warm Welcome
The desperate airlift out of Kabul, Afghanistan, had barely kicked into gear last month when a call went out to Wisconsin’s Volunteer Organization Active in Disaster (VOAD) group. There was an urgent need for clothing to help the displaced Afghans arriving in Wisconsin in early September with only what they had on them. Alice Garrett, the Wisconsin Adventist Community Services director started the drive for clothing with a flurry of emails for help on short notice. The response was overwhelming.
