How do we get the goods to PIA? Just drop them off at the check-in counter, or is there a central place that PIA has designated for them?

crap, my bad...

Here's the e-mail I got

"This Wednesday, October 12, 2005, a PIA flight loaded with relief supplies
for the earthquake victims in Pakistan will depart from Chicago O'hare. The
Institute of Islamic Education (IIE) is serving as a drop-off point for
blankets and clothing items.

IIE asks that you please take advantage of this great opportunity to please
Allah Ta'ala by helping your fellow Muslims by donating clothing items. The
items must be clean, folded, and usable; items must be packed in boxes and
the boxes must be clearly marked. (e.g. Men's Clothes, Blankets, etc.)

[Clothes and Blankets/Bedding Only]

The boxes must arrive at the Institute of Islamic Education in Elgin no
later than 10:00am this Wednesday."

A truck load of Aid is being sent to YYZ on Friday by the Mcgill Pakistan Student Association. I am pleased to inform that PSA members here have raised over $12000 in just two days of an ongoing fund raising effort.
