A Note From Mrs. Duffy

Our hearts go out to the people impacted by the earthquake in Turkey and Syria. We know that we have several Bush Hill families with connections to these two countries and we are hopeful that all of your family and friends that live there are safe. A Bush Hill parent has shared with me that the Turkish Embassy has announced that they are collecting donations for the earthquake victims. They will be sending collected items to Turkey directly. If you would like to help, you may drop items off to the Embassy in Washington, D. C. directly. Alternatively, Bush Hill will collect items for the next week to be dropped off to the Embassy next week. If you are willing to drop off items to the Embassy on behalf of Bush Hill, please call the Bush Hill Main Office at 703-924-5600.

Needed items include any of the following for adults and children:

  • Winter Tent
  • Sleeping Bag
  • Underpants
  • Boots
  • Coats
  • Gloves
  • Socks
  • Raincoats
  • Scarves
  • Baby Food
  • Convenience Foods (foods that don’t require cooking)
  • Drinking water
  • Diapers
  • Sanitary napkins
  • Wet wipes
  • Blankets
  • Pillows
