Where to donate toys and clothes for charity for Christmas?

Besides Caritas, are there any other places to donate clothes and toys for Charity? Thank you for letting me know.

Hi!

I know you've asked for toys and clothes specifically - so this may not be helpful for you... but if you're looking to give and those were just examples then you could consider the Swiss red cross' 2x Christmas drive. The post does the shipping for free - you just put it in achieving box and take it to the post. More info and to find out what they take is here (it's in English too): http://www.2xweihnachten.ch

Thanks a lot, my son has a lot of toys that he is not using anymore... and we're running out of space in the basement. I'd never thought of the Red Cross. Thanks

We donated to:

weihnachtspaeckli.ch

You pack a parcel for children or adults (item list is on the website), bring it to one of their collection points and they take it peole in need in eastern countries.
