Local churches are hosting a “fill up the pickup truck” event Wednesday to collect donations for Afghan refugees at Camp Atterbury.
Wabash Avenue Presbyterian Church and St. Stephen the First Martyr Orthodox Church will accept supplies from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Walmart parking lot.
Donations can also be left in Wabash Avenue pastor Rev. John Van Nuys’ office from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Fridays.
The supplies will be delivered to the military training base near Edinburgh, where thousands of Afghans are being temporarily housed after being evacuated as their country fell to the Taliban.
