Once in a while I get a letter from those wishing to send a package of used clothing to Russia. Today, while reviewing local press, I discovered a new destination right here in Kandalaksha. It is the an organization somewhat awkwardly named “Kandalaksha Complex Center of Social Services to the Population”. At the moment they have a drive to collect toys and especially art or painting supplies for kids in their care. Anybody wishing to send things can do it to my address (ul. Kirovskaya 23 kv. 17, Murmansk oblast, Kandalaksha 184041, Russia), and I’ll personally deliver them either to the Center or to the final recipient. And, of course, I’ll get back to you with a detailed report.
