There is also a big Facebook Group, "Information Point for Greece Volunteers" that has lots of postings and links to agencies doing relief work on Lesvos. Also check out UnitedRescues. Right now, from what I understand, the refugee camp in Moira is being administered by the Greek Military, which means that it is off limits to "civilians"; any donations will likely have to be made through an organization that officially works with the camp and not in-person. What's more, in the past few days, there have been riots and a hunger strike at the camp; all non-essential personnel are apparently being asked to stay clear of Moira. The camp in Moira is tucked far away from any of the lovely towns and tourist areas, so while this will not affect holiday-makers, it is making it difficult to provide aid.
When we were there two weeks ago, we met with Lighthouse Relief on the north of the Island on Skala Skamnias (a gorgeous 20-minute drive from the wonderful Aphrodite Hotel) and made a donation to them. This group has been helping refugee boats to land safely and then providing aid when the refugees arrive before they are sent to the bigger camps. You might want to pay them a visit and give them support. They run a small refugee camp on there as well.
As for what to bring and leave: I've been volunteering in Athens, and instead of bringing goods in my suitcases, I've brought funds to purchase goods in Greece as needed. This insures 1) You don't have enormous amounts of overweight luggage 2) you can purchase what is actually needed on the ground and 3) You help the Greek economy. Granted, there may not be a lot of big discount stores on Lesvos, but there are pharmacies, so maybe do some Googling about what's available on the island near Mitylini and do that.
Enjoy your time at the Aphrodite. It is a beautiful place.
