Afghanistan – One thing you can do now to help

Urgent Call To Action: Please consider helping my daughter Kelli-Rose Hooser Simmons as she mobilizes community support to help Afghan refugee families currently arriving in Philadelphia en-route to Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst where my son-in-law Justin, a Major in the U.S. Air Force, is now stationed.
“Afghan evacuees expected at Philly airport as soon as Friday”

Kelli-Rose has set up an Amazon Gift Account that lists the items most needed at the moment (diapers, toiletries, etc). Please consider visiting this account, helping out by purchasing some of these much-needed items – and instructing they be shipped directly to the “Kelli-Rose Simmons, Gift Registry Address COLLINGSWOOD, NJ” which will be a “shipping option” listed.

Please go here to help:

Thank you to all. Given the tragedy now unfolding, I encourage all who are able to chip in and help with this. As the situation unfolds – I will keep you posted in the future.
