Yokohama International School in Yamate will be a collection point for relief items for the earthquake victims in the Tohoku region. Please see below for more details, quoted from an e-mail sent to YIS families. Here is a link to the access page on the school website--

‎". . . in cooperation with the US Armed Forces, we are organizing the collection of the following: warm clothing (including winter coats), blankets, shoes (not sandals), clean socks, underwear (new), sleeping bags, personal products (shampoo, toothpaste, soap etc), disposable diapers, backpacks & bags, and sealable lunch bags. These items will be airlifted by military helicopters to the stricken areas where temperatures are still very cold. The lobby of the main building at school will be open 8:30am to 11:30am from Wednesday through Friday this week should you wish to help. We cannot go beyond 11:30am this Friday for this particular appeal. Please be mindful of the times of the power outages in your areas and the situation in Fukushima."
