Community Members Asked to Donate Blankets, Clothing to Homeless

November 27, 2012

Members of the CEU community can help homeless Budapest citizens stay warm this winter by donating blankets or clothing. CEU’s Human RightS Initiative (HRSI), which is leading the drive, asks donors to deliver new or used blankets that are clean and in good condition to the CEU Laptop Area at Nador utca 9 and place them in a box under the Human RightS Initiative bulletin board by Nov. 30. The blankets will be distributed by several NGOs working with A Varos Mindenkie (The City is for All) on the evening of Dec. 1. HRSI will also be accepting clean, wearable clothing at the same location through Dec. 14. Those items will be donated to Menhely Alapitvany, a homeless services organization in Budapest.
