stop press: Salvos Stores need your good quality donations

Giving back can take many different forms, be it a monetary donation, your time, or donating goods to assist in generating funds. At Salvos Stores we rely heavily on the generous donations of the public to ensure we can continue to raise funds for the valuable Salvation Army Community Programs.

When a donation is received at Salvos Stores, they are priced and then placed on the shop floor for sale. The monies generated are then provided to The Salvation Army and benefit the wider Australian Community. These donations help many different people, from all walks of life by providing them food, shelter, support with addiction or finding a job, and a little goes a long way.

Donations are vital to ensure we can continue to raise these funds. During the colder winter months, our donation stocks tend to run low as we are unable to keep up with the huge demand for extra winter items such as jumpers, jackets, hat, scarves and gloves. We would love your help in ensuring we have plenty in stock to keep everyone warm this winter by donating your good quality winter woollies to Salvos Stores.

“Donations are vital to Salvos Stores ensuring we can continue to generate funds for the valuable Salvation Army Community Programs. We really appreciate the generosity of the public and encourage them to continue to donate their good quality items to Salvos Stores during opening hours” said Frank Staebe, Chief Operating Officer Salvos Stores.

Good quality donations are accepted at all stores during opening hours and at selected Sunday donation centres. For more information on the opening hours of your local store visit our website Donations are encouraged to be made during opening hours to ensure they are not subject to damage or theft overnight.

If you are unable to make a donation during opening hours, Salvos Stores offers a home collections service by contacting 13 SALVOS (13 72 58).
