Donate Goods to Programs

Our various programs are always grateful to accept donations of goods to continue helping those most in need in our community. Items can range from tins of instant coffee, bedding and craft activities, even to play equipment and furniture.

In-Kind donations are accepted at various locations. Please make sure you take note of the drop off zones specified!

We’ve recently joined GIVIT – Goods For Good Causes where we connect the needs of our programs with generous donors in our community.

Click the button below to visit GIVIT and check out the broad range of items our programs are currently seeking.
Any items you see listed with Hobart Urgent Need before it are for our programs.

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.

Donations made through GIVIT can be posted or delivered to 50 Barrack Street, Hobart.

THE GOOD BOX

We have recently partnered with the amazing team over at The Good Box who provide us with boxes made up of essentials for us to give to 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!
