JAVEA’S Original Charity Shop and Library always helps those in need.
Since the outbreak of the war in Ukraine, the Original Charity Shop and Library has responded to many requests for help, Aileen Stiefel explained.
“Initially we donated blankets and duvets to the collection point at Toscamar,” Aileen told the Euro Weekly News. “The Bomberos Voluntarios then received €1,000 for fuel and overheads to deliver the collected items to Poland.”
Since then, the Original Charity Shop has received a request from the Red Cross for financial help to replenish their food bank.
This is almost empty due to a delivery that failed to arrive and the organisation, which already provides food for needy families in Javea, now expects to receive numerous Ukrainian refugees.
“They have now received an initial cheque for €1,000 to help purchase basics,” Aileen said.
Following a request from HELP, the Original Charity Shop is also a collection point for medication, surgical dressings and jars of baby food. “We also donated €500 towards the purchase of baby food,” Aileen added.
Readers wishing to donate items like these can deliver them to the Original Charity Shop in Carrer de Nancy in Javea’s Arenal, which is open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 1pm.
