We value our Volunteers

Virginia (pictured above with Paul Linossier and Bronwyn Pike) has been the heart and soul of our Sale Op Shop for 33 years and her service was recently recognised at our Melbourne Annual Public Meeting.

Our op shops welcome donations of quality, pre-loved items during opening hours.

Some items can’t be accepted for health and safety reasons, lack of space or low customer demand.

Please call your local op shop to check if they accept the following goods:

Some smaller shops may not have space for large items like exercise equipment, bedframes or couches.

If you’re not sure, please check in with the team before bringing large items into the shop.
