Make a Difference

Pregnant and new families we support, be it through our family support, groups or outreach programs are often in need of material support.

To meet their needs, we collect donations of baby goods and clothing, new or in good and safe condition to give to pregnant women and young families. We also collect maternity wear and other goods for mothers.

For families to be offered the most dignified access to support, we ask that all goods have been checked individually by you before you donate.

Contact us for any specific questions in regards to donations and to find out when and where to donate goods.

 


Melbourne Update: 3 June 2021

Due to Victorian State Restrictions we are currently closed for donations of pre-loved and new goods.  We hope to be open again soon.


Melbourne Update: 5 February 2021

A massive thank you to our communities for your donations of pre-loved and new goods.  As a small organisation we have been inundated with donations and our storeroom is full.

Essendon is open again for donations, each Friday from 10am – 1pm, and we are able to accept children’s clothing in sizes 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 in clean and good condition.

We respectfully ask our community to be mindful when donating.  If clothes have tears, stains, are stretched or discoloured, then we do not give these out so please do not drop them off.

In these changing times we strongly recommend you check our Facebook page or call the office for the latest information on opening hours and donations we are able to accept.

The opening for Caroline Springs will be advised in the next few months.

THANK YOU for helping us do the work we do, we could not do it without you!!

The team at Caroline Chisholm.
