Chip in for Petrol

We love that our work helps our community. 🙂 We love that we help battling Aussies. 🙂 We love that we help the poor overseas. 🙂 We love that we help the environment by reducing landfill. 🙂

We do not love our petrol bill 🙁

Over the past five years we have provided a free collection service to our community by coming to people’s houses (letterboxes actually) to collect clothing donations 4-5 times a year. We are the only charity in the Hunter and Central Coast that does this. We would love to keep providing this free service but we need a little help.

As we all know, the cost of petrol keeps rising. Our trucks and vans drive tens of thousands of kilometres each year collecting blue bags. This adds up to a whole lots of petrol (yes we know our local petrol attendants really well).

Gail, our Business Ops Director says “Donors regularly ask us what more they can do to help us. This is one way you can partner with us to keep our collection vans on the road. We are a small charity so every donation is celebrated by our team.”

This financial year we are expecting a petrol bill of about $60,000. So we are asking you, our donors, to chip in for petrol to help us out.

Just $50 of petrol will rescue 1,140kg of clothes from landfill to give to people in need overseas.

What can you give today?

All donations over $2 are full tax deductible.
