Team Rubicon and volunteers with the Salvation Army are asking for donations of winter clothing for the Afghan refugees now living at Fort McCoy. Fall comes next week and temperatures are starting to cool. Most of the people evacuated from Afghanistan were only able to bring the clothes they were wearing at the time. Organizers are asking for smaller sizes and all donations should go to the Salvation Army first. They’re being processed at the Wisconsin National Guard armory in Sparta. More than 12,000 refugees are being housed at the military installation.
