For in-kind assistance, please contact your municipality first. Collection actions in individual communities can then be reported to the Ministry of the Interior, where transport and distribution will be coordinated.

In Graz, you can donate relief goods for refugee Ukrainian families/children to be taken to the Polish border from 9am-2pm at the Vinothek im Hof at Hans Sachs Gasse 12. Most needed are shoes in all sizes, warm garments, blankets and medicines.
