Help for Ukraine: Holding provides premises in Steyrergasse for collecting donations, free ride for Ukrainian refugees

The war in Ukraine has triggered a wave of readiness to help and solidarity in the Styrian capital. In order to collect donations in kind for the Ukrainians, Holding Graz will support them with its logistics in Steyrergasse from this weekend on: Starting Saturday, Graz residents can drop off donations at Graz Linien in Steyrergasse 114 (access via Brockmanngasse, opposite house No. 84) from Wednesday to Sunday from 5 to 7 p.m., which will then be transported to the Ukrainian border.

Needed are medicines, food and hygiene items. Please do not drop off any more clothing!

Holding Graz CEO Wolfgang Malik: “In difficult times like these, we see it as our social responsibility to help quickly and unbureaucratically. That is why we will be supporting the logistics and handling of donations for Ukraine from the weekend onwards. People can drop off donations in kind at our Holding location in Steyrergasse starting Saturday.”

Holding Graz board member Mark Perz: “People who have fled Ukraine can use the entire Graz Linien network in zone 101 free of charge until further notice upon presentation of their Ukrainian passport*. In addition, we are currently looking into the possibility of transporting donations and relief supplies directly to the Ukrainian border with our long-distance bus fleet.”
