National Op Shop Week!

Hi everyone. This week (August 23rd-30th 2015) is National Op Shop Week.

Clean out your used, but still good stuff, pass it on to our lovely Op Shop staff, knowing that you are really helping people in your own community, and then go out and boost our economy by buying new stuff!  How simple is that?

Our Op Shop is located near the roundabout end of Belgrave. If you want to make a donation but are struggling to find a car park, you can drop goods off at Dandenong Ranges Emergency Relief Service, 1632 Burwood Hwy, Belgrave, at the Cameo end of town. And if you have/do donate or shop at our Op Shop, then we offer our thanks, you can really make a difference to your community.

Homelessness Prevention Week

Did you know that August 3rd to 9th 2015 is Homelessness Prevention Week?

Here is a snapshot of our clients’ housing status. As you can see we help people who are homeless, and even at risk of being homeless.

We cannot find accommodation for people who are homeless, but we assist to prevent homelessness by contributing to paying rent for clients and/or refer clients to the office of Community Housing.

For anyone who does find themselves homeless, we can provide a hot shower and lunch (weekdays only).

If you would like to help us to help others, contact us to see what you CAN DO to help.
