A tool from youngCaritas Wien (Austria)

What do you do?
Contact a social facility nearby (soup kitchen, facility for homeless people…) and ask which longlife and non-refrigerated goods or sanitary products are needed. Contact the manager of a supermarket and ask if you are allowed to collect these goods in his/her market. In the supermarket you address people with your concern (what and for whom you collect goods) and if they want to support you by donating any of your needed goods. Finally you can donate everything to the social facility (don´t forget to make an appointment).

What do you need?

  • contact to a person in a social facility and a supermarket
  • infos about the social facility and a list of products in need
  • a vehicle (car, cargo bike…) for delivering your funds
