Donate food or clothes

A donation of goods can make a real difference! Your non-perishable food donations contributes to a week of meals for someone in need, and your quality used clothing can help fill our Shops, where all profit feeds back into our community work.

Emergency Relief Centres

Our centres distribute hundreds of kilograms of food each week to people in need.

We are grateful for your donations to stock our cupboards. See Emergency Relief Donation Ideas for a list of the types of goods we collect.

Samaritans Shops

We recycle pre-loved goods at our four Op Shops located in Newcastle and Lake Macquarie. The profits from your purchases and donations are used to fund our vital services supporting locals experiencing hardship.

You can drop off your clothing or small items to any of our stores. Unfortunately we are unable to accept furniture, however baby furniture and small items can be delivered directly to our Wallsend shop.
