Information for people donating second-hand items:
Flyktingar Lund collects second-hand clothing and shoes in good condition for adults and children, toys, small furniture and kitchen equipment at our volunteer station. We like to donate high quality second-hand clothing to asylum-seekers and refugees so that they feel welcome in Lund and Skåne. Please wash the clothing before delivering it to us as a sign of courtesy and respect to our volunteers who spend a lot of time classifying and ordering donations. For us, clothing in good condition implies clean garments whose fabric is not worn by use, with no stains or holes, with functioning zippers and complete buttons. Remember all people you meet at the station are volunteers, which means that they are contributing with their time for free. So, they will appreciate not to spent time in throwing away clothing that does not suit the requirements specified above.
You can deliver donations every Thursday from 17.00 to 19.00. Please visit our Facebook group for an update of the items we are collecting. The list changes due to the season and the needs of refugees. If you have something to donate and you cannot deliver donations on Thursday, please contact Tonis Rand, E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org to agree on a time for delivery.
Due to lack of transport for picking up donations and shortage of storage space we cannot take big donations of furniture.
Dates and time for delivering donations:
- Thursdays, from 5 July to 13 December 2018
- Time: 17.00 to 19.00
Sponsor us – If you do not have any second-hand clothing to donate and you would like to support our work, you can sponsor us as a private person, read more.
