DONATIONS

UPDATE: Thanks to the generosity of the Mackay community over Christmas we are fully stocked at the moment and we’re currently unable to accept any donated items. Please watch this space for updates.

Thank you for thinking of us — we really appreciate it!

You can make a secure one-off or regular monetary donation to the Mackay Women’s Centre by clicking on the GiveNow icon.

We often rely on community generosity and donations to help us provide items for emergency relief or charity drives. There are a number of items we almost always need [although at the moment we are full and unable to accept any more items].

  • toiletries
  • sanitary items
  • nappies (particularly larger sizes)
  • infant formula
  • baby wipes
  • baby food

These items are in constant demand to help women and families with emergency relief. If you’re able to donate any of the above items, please feel free to drop them in to the centre. We’re open from 8.30am – 4.30pm Monday to Friday. Your generosity is appreciated.

Donating larger items

Unfortunately we don’t have enough space at the centre to store multiple items or large items — although there are occasionally families in need of items such as cots, highchairs, strollers and other larger household appliances and furniture.

If you’re interested in donating larger items to the centre it is always best to contact us first to learn more about what items are in particular demand.

We also use GIVIT – the national non-profit organisation that connects donations with those in need – we often post there when we are assisting a person or family who have specific needs.
