GIVE YOUR JACKETS !

 

 

If you want to give your jackets to refugees, this is how you can do it.

 

  • What to give?

When it comes to facing European winters, refugees need:

High quality jackets and first layers

Smaller size clothes (maximum size medium)

Dark colors (very bright colors aren’t practical when it comes to discretion)

Donations should be given in boxes including a detailed list of what it contains (quantity of items, brands, colors and sizes)

 

  • You can give or send your jackets to several collection points:

 

In France (French campaign 1-30th of October)

ANNECY

 

 

Around 800 migrants (mainly from Sudan) just arrived in Annecy a few days ago. They have no roof, no place to stay and no one apart from locals and non-profits to help them. They are struggling and need food and clothes right now!  Help us help them by giving some jackets and other warm cloths (for men only)!

Riders for Refugees in France are helping them now before leaving for Italy to bring some more jackets!

So please give!
