Frequently Asked Questions

FAQs

Do you accept second-hand items?

We only accept ‘like new’ clothing for sizes between newborn to size 9. Clothing donations of sizes 10 to 16 must be brand new.

All donations of underwear, socks and toiletries must also be brand new.

Do I have to donate a full backpack of items?

No, you can donate as little or as much as you can. We pack the backpacks with the required items in our warehouse prior to distributing to children in need.

Do you have a base in the southern suburbs?

Our organisation is proud to have a very low administration cost. As such we have limited our main warehouse to Para Hills. We do however, have drop-off locations all over Adelaide that you can drop your items to.
