  2. Drop off to a volunteer near you (if you only have a couple of things)

We can arrange a courier service for large items for a tax deductible donation of $45. For more information, read here or please email donate@stkildamums.org

We rehome essential kids and baby items needed by families facing multiple disadvantages. Please see the list below and note that we don't rehome electrical items, household furniture (like dining tables) or adult clothing (including maternity).

Please click on each item heading to display more information, and read our safety guidelines for the items with ✴️. If you are unsure about an item or how to deliver the donation please feel free to email us

We are passionate about repairing things, e.g. pram wheels, ripped material - however this is not always possible. Please email us a photo and a detailed description if there is a fault. We ask you to not donate anything that is broken, damaged, torn, ripped, stained or faulty.

As a simple rule, if there's something wrong with it then we can't rehome it.
