Donate clothes and goods

Wondering where to donate clothes and goods so you can make a difference?

Red Cross Shops sell new and donated clothes, accessories and homewares to raise funds to help people in need.

We rely on the people who so generously donate quality pre-loved items that we can then sell in our shops.

What can I donate?

Our op shops accept quality clothing donations, accessories, books and homewares. If it’s good enough quality to give to a friend then it’s something we’d love.

We don’t accept mattresses, electrical goods or clothing with stains or damage.

How can I donate?

Donations are gratefully accepted at any Red Cross Shop and can be brought into any Red Cross Shop during trading hours. Our staff will add them to our charity bins.

While you’re there, pick up a Loyalty Card and we’ll reward you with a 25% discount after your 10th purchase or donation. See terms and conditions.

Country Road partnership

We’re 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.

Where does the money go?

Proceeds from the sale of these goods go towards our everyday work in Australia and further afield, including disaster relief and recovery, daily phone calls to check on the welfare of elderly or isolated people living alone, and helping out young parents or young homeless people.

To continue doing this, we need great quality donations to sell.
