Food and toiletry donations

These are some of the foods and toiletries that are most sought after. Please note that due to limited storage space we are unable to accept donations of furniture, toys, books or clothes. If you would like to donate items not listed below please contact us to discuss this.

We can receive these donations between 9am and 4pm, Mondays to Fridays. It is best to avoid coming between 11.30am and 1.30pm, as this is the busiest time in the centre. If you plan on bringing a large delivery, please contact reception on 02 9078 1900 first to prepare us.
