WHY SIGN UP TO OUR COMMUNITY?
We want you to feel like you are part of a community of ‘Givers.’ We don’t want to bombard you for assistance. You can trust your donations are reaching those most vulnerable via an organisation that is run by a group of dedicated volunteers. Importantly, by signing up we can thank you for that generosity.
Is it ok to only donate clothes?
ABSOLUTELY and never say only!

Can I ignore your alert email if I do not have clothes to donate at that time?
You don’t need to respond to every alert – we will not be offended.
Can I only participate in Annual Charity Drives for Christmas, Food or Social Events?
SURE THING! We will put the call out during the year via social media, email and maybe the odd Text Message (how techy and fancy of us).
You can select this when Joining Our Community.
Why we ask for new socks, underwear and PJs?
Our agencies and support workers have requested these items are new. We feel a nice new pair of PJ’s for every individual is small way they can feel special in a very practical way.
We hope you may consider adding new socks, underwear and a pair of PJ’s to your donated items in the future but it is certainly not an expectation. We will work with schools, preschools, sporting clubs and workplaces to do charity drives throughout the year to keep these items in stock in the warehouse.
Why donate a gift card?
We would gratefully accept these and shop on your behalf. We suggest Kmart, Big W, Best & Less and Target as we can get more ‘bang for your buck.’ We would also use them to accompany packs when we have larger families and unable to supply a full array of items or when the parent or guardian’s pack needs some extra TLC.
Could my friend, family member or neighbour give items to me to donate on their behalf?
You are both amazing BUT at least one of you needs to Join Our Community.
Could I give an annual or monthly donation and not Join the community?
Could I run a Charity Drive at my kinder, pre-school, school or work on your behalf?
Thank you for asking and while I have your attention YES PLEASE – you are just our type of Community Members. We need you!
