USA - New York City - PIA offer to fly supplies out to Pakistan

From "W" in the comments

If you're in the NYC area you may donate blankets, sweater and meds per this announcement:

Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has offered to fly supplies out to Pakistan from New York City. We will be collecting winter clothing and blankets to send to those in need.
DIL and YOUR DIL have been designated by the Pakistani Consulate to certify the contents of packages sent and will deliver the items to PIA.

We will collect items at various locations around the city (see below for details) until Friday October 14 at 8pm.

We encourage everyone to pass this around to your co-workers and friends. If you are able to, collect from other people on your own and drop items off at one of the official collection points.

This is so important. Without these supplies, there is a great danger the death toll in the region will continue to rise. Please take the time out to contribute to this effort.

Thank-you so much,
