Where To Donate Items For Needy Families in Adelaide

Advice (45)     
De-clutter your home and make a difference for families in need.

How often do you clean out wardrobes, cupboards, and toy boxes? I find that I am cleaning out my children's clothes every 3-6 months, which leaves me with boxes, and bags of clothes filling up the garage.

I have started to notice charity bins popping up around my suburb, which made me realise that I should be donating all of my unwanted items to charities.

Is your business looking for extra exposure during the lead up to Christmas? Adelaide Mums Group is holding a Facebook Coupon Race on Friday 7th December and you're invited to take part!
Running every second Saturday, join Foodi on their interactive Chocolate Walking Tour, where you will discover some of these chocolatiers and gain insight into their craft.
I started to do some research, and found a few names that you may not have heard of, and other familiar organisations that are happy to hand your unwanted items to families in need.

St Vincent de Paul Society

St Vincent de Paul is a well known name, and has been helping families in need for many, many years. You are able to donate clean, unstained, good conditioned clothes, toys, and furniture. Your donations will go directly to families in need, and surplus items will be sold in store.

GIVIT

GIVIT is a wonderful Nation-wide organisation that matches your unwanted items to a person or family who needs it. To find what items are needed, click here and enter your postcode to see the closest family near you.

Alternatively, if you cannot find anyone near you, and still want to donate these items, click here to send the details of your donation through to GIVIT organisers, who will then make contact with other charities who will accept these donations.


Australian Red Cross

Red Cross, similar to Vinnies, accept donations through their store, and charity bins, which are located throughout Adelaide.

Items such as clean, well looked after clothes, toys, and books are gratefully accepted, while items such as mattresses, electrical goods, or clothing that is stained and unkempt are not accepted.

All items are sold in store. The proceeds from the sale of items go towards helping families in need from poverty, disaster relief and recovery, helping and supporting the elderly and isolated people living in remote areas, as well as homeless adolescence.

These items will be given to mothers and pregnant women who are experiencing financial difficulties, have been ostracised by their family, and who are escaping domestic violence.

To donate items to Genesis Pregnancy Support, please drop the items off at their office between 10:00am- 3:00pm, Monday to Friday.
