Thanks to our partner Uber, on Saturday, 19th November, between 10am - 4pm, you can book a free Uber Package pickup (via the Uber app) to collect your pre-loved, quality clothes from your home, to donate to Red Cross Shops. Pick up is available in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth.
Red Cross Shops urgently need high-quality clothing and accessories to sell, to fund critical disaster response projects and everyday humanitarian work that supports Australians when they need it most.
Firstly, clear out your wardrobe. Red Cross need quality, saleable clothing and accessories. As a guide, if it’s something you’d feel great about giving to a friend, then it’s perfect to donate!
Next, gather your pre-loved items into a bag or box, no heavier than 20kg, so it could comfortably sit in the boot of a midsize car.
Did you know.. the average Aussie gets rid of 23kgs of clothing per year? You can feel good knowing your donations are saving thousands of quality items from landfill, and helping to conserve precious environmental resources. In the past year, Red Cross shops have extended the life of over 6 million items, which may have otherwise been destined for landfill.
