MFR Donations Drive: Dec 16 – Jan 17

Happy updates to share! Between mid-December and the end of January, Madrid For Refugees collected and delivered a HUGE amount of winter clothes, shoes, toiletries, hygiene items, household supplies, blankets and heaters, backpacks, children’s toys, baby clothes and products, strollers, cribs, and so much more!

We must once again thank our donors for making it possible for us to serve refugees of many nationalities living in refugee centers, in addition to helping us meet the specific needs and requests of refugees living in the community of Madrid.

Thanks also to the groups and individuals that have held their own donation drives for us and made our lives so much easier- IberEnglish, Riverside Idiomas, Wicked Smaht Trivia (Maria Gizarelli), Francesca di Mambro, European Parliament, Alliance française, and all the other individuals that are too many to tag – we are so grateful!
