A Roots of Peace shipment with winter clothes made it to Afghanistan.

The Bay Area group has been helping to build & supply a school north of Kabul.

The mittens, hats and sweaters for students were shipped last September 11th.

The mission is funded by more than 25 million pennies that Roots of Peace has collected -- much of that in the Bay Area.
