Donate a Care Package


We know that there are people in our community who are doing it tough, either because of the current COVID lockdown across Wollongong, Shellharbour and Greater Sydney, or for other reasons.

Some folks are experiencing financial hardship right now, some people are particularly vulnerable to COVID-19 and have had to quarantine themselves, some have kids stuck at home who have run out of things to do and are wreaking havoc, and some people are lonely and socially isolated.

You can help by donating a care package to someone in need. We are working with local charities including Wollongong Homeless Hub, and accepting nominations from the community for people who could do with a free care package. We then find out what they most need and hand-pick a variety of good quality, gently-used items from our beautiful op shop to drop at their door.

Thank you for paying it forward. A little kindness goes a long way.

You can also order your own care package, order a care package for a friend, or nominate someone to receive a free care package.

Donations are tax-deductible.

Donations are tax-deductible.

Recipients will be chosen according to need and based on nominations from Wollongong Homeless Hub, other charities, and the general public.

Care packages may include items such as:

  • Blankets, sheets, towels
  • Warm jackets, scarves, hats and other clothes
  • Pots, pans, cutlery, crockery and other homewares
  • Books, toys, DVDs, CDs

We take pride in hand-selecting items according to what people want and need, and delivering a care package full of goods that we hope they will love and that will take the pressure off at home so they can focus on other things.

Items have been gently used but are in great condition and handled using the NSW government’s COVIDsafe guidelines for retail.

Thank you for your support!
