Donate Goods to Programs

A great way that you can help people in need in our community, is to donate goods to our programs. Some of these programs include Emergency Relief, Small Steps, or DIY Dads

 Items can range from tins of instant coffee, bedding and craft activities, to play equipment and furniture. 

Click the button below to visit GIVIT, a fantastic third party website that connects our programs with generous donors in our community (and all over Australia!).  Through GIVIT, you can see all of the items that we currently need for our programs. 

Hobart City Mission items are listed as “Local Hobart Charity Urgent Need”. Please contact Em on 6215 4200 or at communications@hobartcitymission.org.au if you have any questions.

A few big ticket items we currently have listed on GIVIT are:
-Vouchers for clothes & shoes for a 7 year old boy who has outgrown his clothing
-A free standing basketball hoop for Mountain View
-A $100 Bunnings voucher to help mums set up a veggie patch at Small Steps
-Play Doh set for DIY Dads
-A laptop for Mountain View
-5 sets of durable (metal) hand held children’s gardening tools for DIY Dads
-Diamond Painting Kits for Mountain View

GIVIT is a free, third party website that enables us to list all the items we need across our various programs. As a donor you can either donate the item we need, or you can donate money to towards purchasing it! No fees or charges are taken from your monetary donations so you can rest assured that your whole donation is going toward the item you would like to help us purchase.

EMERGENCY RELIEF

Our Emergency Relief program provides food vouchers, food packs with non-perishable items, warm clothing and emotional support to those in desperate need.

In-kind donations of the following items are very gratefully received at both 50 Barrack Street, Hobart and 11 Main Road, Moonah.

FOOD PACKS AND VOUCHERS

The items that we usually provide in a food pack include:
  • Cans of Big’N Chunky soup (525g)
  • Long life (UHT) milk (1lt)
  • Jars of pasta sauce
  • Cans of tuna (185g and 95g)
  • Cans spaghetti & baked beans
  • Packet noodles
  • Packets of plain pasta
  • Packets of rice (1kg)

When donating, it’s important to remember that many of the people who need food packs have limited kitchen facilities. Ring-pull cans are great, as they can be used without a can opener. 

We also accept food vouchers for Coles and Woolworths of $50 or more to provide to families & individuals who are seeking assistance.

WEARABLE WOOLLENS

If you are interested in donating warm clothing directly to those in need, we are always on the lookout (especially during winter) for:

  • Woollen beanies
  • Woollen gloves/mittens
  • Woollen socks
  • Woollen scarves

THE GOOD BOX

We have recently partnered with the amazing team over at The Good Box. They provide boxes made up of essentials for those in our community who are sleeping rough. The coolest part is, you can go onto their page and donate a box! These boxes are a way for us to start a conversation and let the recipient know that their community cares. 

The Good Box is more than just about handing out beautiful gifts, it’s about facilitating positive conversations and helping to restore dignity to those who are doing it tough.

OP SHOPS

Donations to our Op Shops are also a great way to help raise money for our programs. 

You can donate good quality clothing, bric-a-brac, furniture, books, artwork… if it’s still in good condition and you loved it once, chances are that someone else will love it too!
