With the closing of the emergency shelter in the Hangars the “Kleiderkammer” was dissolved.
The “Kleiderkammer” was the cradle of Tempelhof Hilft and THFwelcome – here everything started at the end of October 2015. Daily, up to 50 volunteers were giving out clothing to the residents of the former Tempelhof airport. The group of volunteers who has been there from the start became shift coordinators. The pragmatic solutions of the beginning were developed further into a well-functioning system of donation and distribution. This way the fair distribution of the products through a specially developed voucher system was ensured. The distribution room was a meeting place for residents and volunteers – and this precisely reflects our goals: an unbiased coexistence, an open approach and a daily extension of our horizon.
Please note: Among the received donations were things that we were not able to use. However, in order for it to benefit the refugees, we organized BAZAARs at the THFcafé. The revenues support our projects.
Thanks for your support!
