Donate commodities and money
If you want to donate clothes, shoes or also technical devices - not only for refugees -, you can bring them to various facilities.
Clothes can be delivered at the city´s collection points or at the clothing store of the German Red Cross (DRK). Furniture and technical devices can be brought to commercial suppliers.
Due to organizational and food regulatory reasons staff of the city administration in the accommodation centres and camps of asylum seekers are not allowed to accept any food donations or donations of any other kind. Yet, the city administration has opened a donations account for monetary donations, which are used to support refugees and asylum seekers. These financial allowances are paid for example for voluntary projects and offers of assistance.
Regardless of the sum donated, a receipt of cash deposits, a bookkeeping record (e.g. statement of account) of a financial institution or the computer print-out when doing online banking will do as donation receipt.

Donations of bicycles
Bicycles can be brought to the workshops of the project “With bike and advice”.
In this project, bicycles are repaired together with asylum seekers. Following that, the asylum seekers can use the bicycles. They will also be given training courses by the police and the German Automobile Club ADAC as to how to behave on a bike in road traffic.
Whoever has a bike that he or she does not need any longer, may gladly donate it for this purpose.
