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. 

Either check out or list below, or click the button to visit GIVIT, a fantastic third party website that connects our programs with generous donors in our community (and all over Australia!). Any items listed by HCM will be labeled “Local Charity Urgent Need”.

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.

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.


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!

Please feel free to contact our Partnerships Specialist, Em on 03 6215 4287 or at communications@hobartcitymission.org.au if you have any questions about donating goods to programs.
