TouchPoint Stansted* are one of 6 locations in Essex where the public can donate clothing for refugees from Afghanistan. There’s still time to drop off suitable clothes & toys at Crafton Green House where the community organisation has volunteers sorting through donations.
HOW TO HELP
Donations go DIRECT TO THE RECIPIENTS at their accommodation. For this reason TouchPoint ask:
- If you could please SEPARATE DONATED ITEMS into different bags by type e.g. clothing, toiletries, games etc
- If you could LABEL THE BAGS e.g. “Men’s Clothing Size Medium”, “Girls’ Clothes Aged 4-5 years” and so on, as in the photo below.
- And if you could ensure any clothes are clean and dry
There is a particular need for toiletries, NEW underwear, shoes (& flip flops)
Also please hand your donation to a member of the TouchPoint team. DO NOT leave items outside or at any other time. This could cause access problems for other users of Crafton Green.
Saturdays: 10am to 1pm
Crafton Green, 72 Chapel Hill, Stansted, Essex, CM24 8AQ
