The Community Engagement Office in cooperation with VinziWerke Vienna is organizing a donation drive of non-perishable food/ingredients for preparing hot meals in their shelter for people in need. If you would like to support these people you are encouraged to join our project by donating the following items:
- non-perishable food items (rice, pasta, tomato sauce, lentils, canned food, oil, etc.)
- so-called “REWE” food vouchers (utilizable in all the big supermarket chains) are also welcome.
The donation boxes are placed at the entrance of OeAD-Guesthouse Simmeringer Hauptstrasse and next to the office in the OeAD-Guesthouse Sechshauser Strasse.
The VinziWerke are belonging to a worldwide movement engaging voluntarily to ease the lives of people that found themselves in an emergency situation. In Austria the organization is thereby dedicated to those people that do no longer have a proper home and therefore find themselves in a precarious housing situation by providing on a daily basis accommodation for 450 people either in emergency shelters or long-term shelters as well as nutrition for 1400 people. For such a large number of people, however, a lot of voluntary engagement is needed: Be it with a food donation, or in the future in one of the shelters or the food distribution.
