Donations of Goods

Our clients often leave their homes in a hurry – with no time to take extra belongings. Even when they return to their communities they can need a full household of resources. You can help by donating quality used goods, household items and clothing. Because our clients’ needs change and due to limited storage space we can only accept what we require at any one time.

Here’s what we need right now:

  • Nappies
  • Food for the safe house
  • Meat for freezer
  • Food for dinner meals
  • Feminine products

How to donate resources

Please contact us on 03 364 8900 or 0800 Refuge to donate as we don’t often have physical space to store donations.
