Red Cross locally

Apart from being the performer of “Vi Ses! Språkvänner I Linköping” Linköping södra Red Cross has many other related activities that might be of interest. If you are interested in trying out being a volunteer at any of our activates, you can contact Vi Ses and we’ll ask the person in charge for the activity to contact you. Send an e-mail and call us if you are interested in knowing more/apply to volunteer.

Second Hand-Stores

In our three second hand-stores, donated goods are sold, and the profit is used to finance our operations locally, nationally and globally. The volunteers are working with sorting the donated goods, setting prices and working at the check-out. You will find the stores in Linköping centrum – Nygatan 11, Berga centrum and Skäggetorp centrum. You will find the opening hours here.

Would you, at your place of work, like to collect money to donate to the Red Cross? More information will be found here.
