Statewide donation effort continues for Camp Atterbury evacuees

Hoosiers can still donate needed items to Afghan evacuees at Camp Atterbury at eight locations across the state.

Several Indiana National Guard armories serve as collection sites for new, donated items for Operation Allies Welcome. The locations have changed in recent weeks, including the opening of a location in Columbus and Lafayette, to best serve the donation effort launched by Governor Eric J. Holcomb in mid-September.

Current collection sites include:

South Bend: 1901 S. Kemble Avenue, South Bend, IN, 46613

Donation sites are open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday (closed for the holiday on Nov. 25-26).

Hoosiers have donated more than 1.5 million items to Camp Atterbury so far.

Current high-need items include:

Closes-toed shoes in all sizes

Men’s pants in various sizes


Bottle brushes

Fingernail clippers

Only new items in original packaging are accepted.
