Workplace giving is a great way to donate to your chosen charity directly from your pre-tax working income.
By signing up to support Avalon via your workplace giving the program, you’ll be supporting the vulnerable and disadvantaged members of the community.
You may wish to give a donation that specifies where your money is going.
For example $10 to buy a care pack for the Homeless or $15 for Socks and Jocks.
What CAN I donate?
When considering whether something can be donated, our rule of thumb is if you’d give it to a friend, then it’s ok to give to Avalon.
- All Men’s Clothing
- Some Children’s Clothing
- All Winter Wear (seasonal)
- Clean, Unstained Bedding
- Shoes and Socks – Clean/near new
- Any unopened toiletries or essentials that anyone that is in need may require
We may sell some items that may not be suitable to distribute (e.g evening gowns, suits etc) to raise funds for essential items like underwear and personal care products. Any proceeds from the sale of donated clothes will support our mission of assisting and empowering the homeless community. Thank you for your support.
What CAN’T I donate?
It takes a lot of volunteer hours to sort through the thousands of items we get each week that aren’t usable. Please do not donate any of the following:
- Soiled/Unwashed Bedding
- Clothes that cannot be worn due to damage
- Electrical Goods
- Damaged or Broken Goods
- Used Underwear
- Household Goods e.g. photo frames, ornaments etc.
- Opened Toiletries
