Why are toy donations helpful?

Donations in kind and food

Please note that for security reasons we cannot accept any donations in kind until at least 7.02.21!

We are constantly looking for:

  • Clothing and shoes suitable for the current season (clean and wearable), we have to decline winter clothing in summer for logistical reasons!
  • Towels and bedsheets
  • Household goods (well-preserved pans, pots, dishes, toasters, etc.)
  • Toys (clean, complete and in good condition)
  • well-preserved bags, rucksacks and suitcases
  • Books (not older than 10 years !!)

Since we are currently burdened economically and logistically with outdated, dirty and defective donations in kind, we allow ourselves the following advice:

We are now free to check donations in kind before they are accepted. More and more of the so-called donations are in a state that we can only dispose of for a fee - and there is not enough money to help others!

We will no longer accept the following items in the future:

  • (electric) foot massagers
  • Toilet / bath seats
  • Electric blankets
  • Crutches, walking aids, walking sticks
  • Books that are more than 10 years old
  • Furniture of all kinds (chairs, tables, chests of drawers, garden furniture ...)
  • Seat cushions for garden furniture
  • VCR and DVD player
  • Records, video cassettes, cassettes
  • PCs and accessories (older than 3 years)
  • Tool
  • Landline telephones, fax machines, copiers
  • Bicycles (because some "jokers" donated stolen bicycles to us ...)
  • anything that looks dirty, defective, incomplete or "out of date" and / or smells accordingly


We ask for your understanding that, for personal and economic reasons, we can only collect donations in kind in absolute exceptional cases.
