Red Cross Shops sell new and pre-loved, good quality clothes, shoes and accessories and we need quality donations all year round. The funds raised go to support Red Cross teams helping people as they overcome hardship, crisis and disaster in Australia and across the Asia Pacific.
When contributing to our charity bins in store, make sure your donations are clean and usable. Your donations should also be worth buying – if you wouldn’t buy it then we probably won’t be able to sell it.
We don’t sell products that may be harmful to our staff, volunteers or customers. Nor do we sell items that conflict with our Fundamental Principles. Red Cross has to pay to dispose of items that we can’t sell, so please do not donate items that we can’t accept.
If you have donations to drop off, thank you so much. You can donate over the counter at any Red Cross Shop during trading hours. There’s also specially-marked charity bins in-store where you can donate. Please donate responsibly. Don’t leave donations outside our shops as these can be damaged by the weather or other people.
Red Cross accepts stock donations from businesses and retailers facing challenges with limited space or who have excess stock to clear.
We are available to book in product collections and can work with you on bespoke requirements that your business may have. Donations receive an acknowledgement letter, which can be used for tax purposes.
Products we accept
We accept new, saleable products (that are not damaged or faulty) in these categories:
Please check out our donation guide above. If you have stock outside of these categories to donate or have any questions at all please contact us - we would love to talk to you.
We are excited to have teamed up with Country Road to offer you an exclusive bonus when you donate pre-loved Country Road clothes and accessories.
Thanks to our Fashion Trade program when you donate one or more Country Road items you score a $10 voucher to use in any Country Road store Australia-wide. Vouchers can be redeemed on purchases of $50 or more, one per transaction. Donations can be made at any Country Road or Red Cross store all year round.
The funds raised from your donations go to support Red Cross teams on the ground in Australia and across the Asia Pacific. They might help us to make daily welfare phone calls to older folks who are isolated, support communities recovering from a disaster, welcome families making a new life in Australia after years in a refugee camp, and so much more. Your quality donations will help us to continue providing this much-needed support for people overcoming hardship, crisis and disaster. Thank you so much for your generosity.
Every quality item you donate or purchase from an Australia Red Cross Shop helps the environment by keeping items out of landfill and reducing CO2 emissions. Calculate your impact below with this handy tool from Charitable Recycling Australia.
