This organisation is collecting specific items to go the refugees in the balkans.  Warm clothing, blankets, baby milk..

If anyone has found somone sending pallets or doing a truck run the volunteers in Greece are absolutely desperate for mens clothes on Lesvos and other refugee points, they are in very bad physical and mental states and are queueing in their hundreds at the medical tent as they are so cold....i am also willing to do collections, DHL in the UK have a reduced aid rate for large pallets of aid, but i Dont know about here? Obviously tents etc are need too. Check out the starfish organisation based on Lesvos for more up to date info....there is a also angroup in Stroud doing shipments if you have friends in the UK wanting to donate.....

Just to conclude - I didnt find a collection point specifically for aid for refugees and took the tents to EMMAUS at Brest.

Are you sure they want clothes? Often bags of clothing are a logistical problem for these situations. Tents I'm sure will be useful but usually they prefer clothes to go to charity shops.

Thanks Sarah - joined that group but they are a couple of hours away on the collecting - will keep looking and ask them if they come near us we will meet them half way.
