Trust In Education, a Lafayette-based group helping Afghans rebuild their lives and country, is holding a "donate, sort and pack" event Saturday -- May 31 -- at Lafayette United Methodist Church at 955 Moraga Ave. from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

From the Trust in Education's bulletin:

Recommended Donations -- dropped off no later than noon:

Please make sure that all items are in good condition and that they are clean and folded.

Only donate what you would offer to a friend! No underwear please!

  Most Needed Items:

The winters are long and harsh, so warm clothing is top of the list.

  • Women’s, Men’s, Girls and Boys (all ages)
  • Shirts (long sleeve and T-shirts)
  • Winter coats, gloves, hats and scarves
  • Shoes and boots. (Please tie together or put each pair in a plastic bag, or they will get separated.)
  • Socks and sweatshirts
  • Blankets, sleeping bags, pillows, hot water bottles, comforters
  • Clean, lightly used Toys
Household Items:
  • Tin containers
  • Tupperware
  • Plastic plates, bowles, cups and glasses
  • Pots and Pans
School Supplies:
  • Pencils, colored pencils, pencil sharpeners, crayons, pens, markers
  • Paper (lined, plain and art)
  • Backpacks
  • Notebooks
  • Rulers, protractors and calculators (not electric)
  • No books unfortunately–too heavy and a culturally sensitive area that’s too difficult to monitor.

Computers and Monitors – Flat screen monitors only. The clunkers require too much electricity. Both laptops and desktops can be used in the computer classes we support.

Soccer and Vollyball — Shoes, shin guards and uniforms. If you have enough uniforms for a whole team, that is wonderful!
