Currently Syrians are the most substantial refugee population worldwide.

Due to the violence, corruption, and civil war throughout Syria, these individuals were forced to neglect their homes and neighborhoods, as they were being bombed and are now nearly completely lamented.

Massive  amounts of Syrians are pouring into other countries in search of a more secure environment to live.

As world powers, the United States and Europe are arbitrating and contemplating how accountable they are and should be for these refugees.

However many average Americans and Europeans are apprehensive due to the falsely widespread perception of all Muslims and the Islamic culture. The thought of these refugees attaining their progressions as they’re willing to work for less pay terrifies many.

Many of these émigrés are traveling to camps where it’s extremely likely that all they’re given and possess is a tent, as they were forced to leave everything behind.

Westhill high school is directing a ‘mitten drive’ to subsidize Syrian refugees stay warm during the winter months.

All students that are in grades 9 through 12 are eligible to participate by bringing in their superfluous winter necessities that include, but are not limited to mittens, hats, and gloves. Students bring in their commodities they wish to donate preferably in throwaway grocery bags, and put them underneath the Christmas tree in the main office.

Students can inform themselves of the mitten drive by reading the posters hung throughout the building and/or carefully listening to the morning and afternoon announcements.

Particular teachers have taken the opportunity to directly engage themselves, as well as encourage their students to support and aid the cause.
