So far, the refugee organisation in Kronberg has received so many donations, that clothes, furniture, toys, kitchen utensils etc. can only be accepted if listed on the list of required items. Please check this list first, then write an email to the listed contact before transporting any items.
The best way to get to know the refugees as well as the many volunteers is to visit the "Treffpunkt International" in Villa Winter, Heinrich-Winter-Straße in Kronberg (behind Berliner Platz, next to the Kronthal primary school). This is a meeting point, open to anyone every day from 3 to 5 pm. You can have a tea or coffee, talk to the refugees, play games, help with the homeworks, or contact any of the volunteers present to see where you could engage yourself. Some German language skills would be helpful.
