Orphans and adult refugees arrived at Near East Relief stations dressed in scavenged rags. In the States, local volunteers organized daylong campaigns to gather used clothing for shipment overseas. Bundle Day volunteers gathered sacks of sturdy clothing and shoes, which were then sorted based on gender and age. “The Bigger Your Heart, the Bigger the Bundle” was a popular Bundle Day slogan.
