  • Soles 4 Souls

    Soles 4 Souls

    Soles4Souls® is a shoe charity that collects gently worn shoes and monies to provide shoes to those in need. Donating shoes to Soles4Souls shoe charity is a great way to recycle shoes. 

    Soles4Souls collects new shoes to give relief to the victims of abject suffering and collects used shoes to support micro-business efforts to eradicate poverty. Soles4Souls’ other two divisions, Clothes4Souls and Hope4Souls, provide the same relief and support through clothing and other necessities.


  • Salvos


    Being thrifty is charitable as well as eco-conscious. The Salvation Stores stock a wide range of products as well as fashion for men, ladies, children and babies. Donations are also a wonderful way of giving back to the community and of not being wasteful. Someone


  • St Vincents de Paul Society

    St Vincents de Paul Society

    Shop for a better world. Or donate your unwanted clothes, home wares, toys or furniture to someone who will want it!


  • St Kilda Mums

    St Kilda Mums

    We are a voluntary network of mothers who work together to collect and sort donations of baby and preschool children's clothing, toys, books and essential nursery equipment.

    These items are then re-distributed by Maternal and Child Health Nurses and Family Case Workers from social service agencies to families across the city of Melbourne, Australia.

    We believe that by reusing and recycling much loved babies and children's gear, we not only share the joy of motherhood with each other, but we save the earth's precious resources too

  • OzHarvest


    OzHarvest is a charitable organisation that rescues excess food from restaurants, retailers, food outlets and corporate kitchens that would otherwise be discarded and delivers it to charities that feed the disadvantaged and homeless. OzHarvest is a simple, effective service and is provided free to both food donor and recipient. The food is picked up and delivered the same day using refrigerated vans with a changing daily schedule. The work we do has a dual impact: By supplementing the nutritional wellbeing, dignity and health of at risk communities OzHarvest enables organisations to reduce their food budget and redirect their funding to education and rehabilitation. By ensuring that good food is being eaten rather than going to landfill OzHarvest is helping the environment by ensuring tons of carbon emissions do not pollute the atmosphere.
