Indiana’s Camp Atterbury tapped to house Afghan refugees

Afghan refugees at Camp Atterbury still need your help. Here's what you can do.

When the U.S. pulled out of Afghanistan, more than 7,200 refugees were transported to Camp Atterbury in Indiana. Now, only about 4,100 refugees remain at the camp.

Hoosiers have donated more than 1.5 million items to the camp. But there are several things that refugees are still in need of.

Current items in high need include:

  • Men's pants (of all sizes)
  • Bras
  • Bottle brushes
  • Fingernail Clippers

All items donated to the camp must be new and in their original packaging. You can bring donations to the Indiana National Guard in Terre Haute, located at 3614 Maple Avenue.

You can also shop for the refugees using the camp's Amazon Wishlist. 

Monetary donations are also being accepted. Click here for more information.
