Support HRSI's annual BLANKET DRIVE and WINTER CLOTHES DRIVE! These two activities are a perfect opportunity to remember those less-fortunate, and help to make their holiday season equally as warm and bright

Blanket Drive

Help those in need to stay warm this winter.
  

How does Blanket Drive work?
1. NEW or USED blankets are wanted
2. Just make sure they are clean; in good condition
3. Drop off a blanket at the box in the CEU laptop area under the HRSI Bulletin Board (Nador Utca, 9) 

HRSI collects blankets which will be distributed by several NGOs working together with A Varos Mindenkie (The City is for All) in the evening of December 1. This event is scheduled for this day to commemorate the now-overturned law that prohibits sleeping in the streets in Hungary. Donations  will be given directly to the homeless who will come on December 1 to Blaha Ljuza ter, and the rest will be given to A Varos Mindenkie and\or some other shelters.

The deadline: November 30

 
Winter Clothes Drive
A bit chilly on these snowy days in Budapest? Just think of others who may not have warmly-heated dorm rooms and flats to go back to...
 
How does the Winter Clothes Drive work?
1. Collect any clothes, shoes, jackets, etc. that you may not use anymore.
2. Make sure that the clothes are still in wearable condition, and are clean.
3. Drop off your clothes at the box in the CEU laptop area under the HRSI Bulletin Board (Nador Utca 9)
The clothes will be donated to Menhely Alapítvány (a homeless services foundation in Budapest) http://www.menhely.hu/
 
The deadline: December 14
