In-kind donation request

Warm blankets for the residents of a shelter for refugees

Zeughofstraße 12-15, 12047 Berlin

Information about the request


Due to the adopted energy saving measures, the residents of our shelter are facing a difficult winter. In order to somehow cushion the colder indoor temperatures, we would like to hand out warm blankets to all who need them--especially women and children. In total, 140 people live in our shelter. Therefore, we are looking for a large number of blankets (fleece, wool, new or in very good condition and washed).

If you have several blankets to give away, that would be great. But every single donated blanket makes a difference, too-- and the winter for our residents a little warmer!
