Columbus police drop off supplies, toys for Afghan refugees

Columbus police officers, with the assistance of the city’s Department of Public Works, dropped off more than a flatbed trailer’s worth of supplies for the Afghan refugees at Camp Atterbury yesterday.

Earlier this month, the department held a Pack-A-Patrol-Car drive with a police vehicle in front of police headquarters. The police department accepted new and gently used fall and winter clothing including coats and jackets, as well as new and unopened healthcare and hygiene products. The department is thanking those who donated clothing and supplies.

The officers were also able to deliver balls, coloring books and crayons to some of the children amongst the refugees on the base Thursday.

Police documented their visit on social media.
