Material Aid Donations

We are currently accepting donations of the following items. Please note that we may vary from time to time what we accept due to stock levels and space limitations. Please see the News page for our current list of what we are accepting. Due to our limited volunteer availability, we appreciate all items being cleaned prior to donation. By concentrating our time on order preparation instead of item cleaning, we are able to offer a faster service which sees your goods re-homed more quickly.

Drop Off Points

We have a network of over 40 drop off points all over Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula. We don’t publish a list of these locations as they are mostly the private homes of our volunteers. If you can’t get to our warehouse when we’re open, please send us a message with your suburb via the Contact Us page, and we will put you in contact with your closest volunteer. Alternatively you can send us a private message via our Facebook page.
