Shropshire residents wishing to make donations of goods to support Afghan refugees arriving in the county can do so through Shropshire Supports Refugees.
If you are able to help, please read the below message from the Shropshire Supports Refugees team, and the information below:
We have had an unprecedented amount of phone calls, messages and emails all offering support or donations of one sort or another. We are a small team of people, with a small area of storage at this moment, so we are keen to do our very best to facilitate everybody’s offers but please be patient with us. If you would like to offer donations, then we will do our best to distribute them to refugees, especially Afghanistan refugees. We do ask that you sort it as much as possible into bags of specifics, ie. ladies’ tops, men’s trousers etc. For now, we are looking for Muslim style clothing if possible.
Thank you for caring so much and reaching out with your generous spirit.
