Workplace volunteering

Spend the day with us volunteering with your team.

Spending hands-on time in our warehouse allows your staff to really appreciate the need in the greater Melbourne community for the service we provide to families. Whilst cleaning prams or sorting clothes or packing toiletries, we explain some of the causes of disadvantage of the people we help, provide feedback we have received from case workers and recipients, and demonstrate how quickly we are able to get items into the homes of those who really need it.

We welcome groups of workplace volunteers on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.

We start at 9.30am with a safety briefing so it is important that everyone arrives at that time.  Enjoy the cafes of St Kilda during your lunch break from 12:00-1:00pm.  The day typically finishes at around 3:30pm.

Some of the activities you may be involved in include cleaning and safety checking items such as prams, highchairs and car seats, sorting and packing clothing and toys, or preparing special toiletry packs for mums and babies.

We kindly request a financial contribution of $600 (plus GST) for groups of up to 10 people and $800 (plus GST) for groups of 11-15 people, which ensures that you have a trained staff member guiding your team throughout the day and that you get the most out of your volunteering experience with us.   This contribution also assists us in continuing to provide support to over 8,000 Victorian families per year.  Please note that groups of 11-15 people can be accommodated on Fridays only.

For more information on why we request a financial contribution, please read this article.

If you have any further questions or would like to make a booking please contact us. We look forward to your team joining us here at St Kilda Mums!
