Lüdenscheid aid campaign for the homeless in winter starts again today with more opening days.
At a meeting at the end of October, all the stakeholders who had initiated the aid campaign in December 2020 were in favor of continuing it. Previously, the volunteers had also signaled that they would like to continue the care and food distribution for the homeless.
Now the doors of the AJZ cultural center will be reopened four days a week from November 22 for the poorest in society. The drop-in center is well known in the scene and has proven its worth. On Tuesdays (4 p.m. to 7 p.m.), Wednesdays (4 p.m. to 7 p.m.), Thursdays (4 p.m. to 7 p.m.) and Sundays (11 a.m. to 3 p.m.), the homeless can get something to eat, warm up and talk to the volunteers. Given the current crises and the increased prices of food and energy, the organizers - after two harsh Corona winters - expect a renewed increase in demand.
There will be one small change this year. In the first two years, Lüdenscheid restaurateurs delivered the food to the AJZ. In this way, the relief action also supported local restaurants, caterers and pubs that were temporarily not allowed to open during the difficult Corona period. This winter, the relief action will mainly rely on donations from Bäckerei Sommer, Tafel Lüdenscheid and "foodsharing".
One of the reasons why we came so far is because so many volunteers took the time and talent to help this organization.
If you are thinking about setting up a benefit show or want to run a sports event and collect donations or just have a creative idea get in touch. We are always looking for people who could help out at our warehouse or at shows.
