Winter is so its time to declutter the wardrobe, pack away your summer gear and make room for the winter woolies! Not only are you making some space physically, it is a great way to clear your mind as well and donate some much needed items to local charities.
Allhomes and Communities@Work have their annual drive on 17 June. They are calling out for are blankets, sleeping bags, jumpers, scarves, beanies and gloves to help keep the most vulnerable members of our community warm this winter.
Communities@Work’s Best Dressed Store also need good quality business attire & accessories, including: suits for men and women, dresses and skirts, ties, jackets and pants, shirts and tops, handbags and accessories.
If you are not sure what qualifies as good quality, my test is if it is something that I would consider buying from an Op Shop. If I wouldn’t buy it, I reconsider how I can transition the item.
You can drop your items off to any one of the registered collection points by 17 June. Your contribution will be warmly welcome, especially by the individuals in need.
Allsorts is at hand if you need some tips, or someone to assist you in the process.
