Donate clothing

Red Cross Shops sell donated clothing, accessories and home wares to raise funds for Red Cross' humanitarian activities. Each year, we rescue 450 tonnes of clothing from landfill, give opportunities to 4500 volunteers, and generate funds to help Red Cross support vulnerable people in Australia and around the world. To continue to do this, we need donated items to sell.

What can I donate?

  • Quality women's, men's, or children's clothes
  • Fashion accessories like shoes, handbags and scarves
  • Homewares like manchester, kitchenware and bric-a-brac
  • Books and toys
  • Small pieces of furniture

To help minimise our waste please only donate items good enough for us to sell. Avoid giving items with stains, tears, holes, faulty zips, corporate logos, school uniforms, chips or cracks.

All proceeds help support Australian Red Cross humanitarian activities. By donating goods for resale in our shops, you are helping us raise funds to provide:

  • emergency services during disasters
  • clean water for remote communities
  • support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities
  • a healthy breakfast for Australian kids
  • telephone calls to isolated and elderly people

Thank you for supporting Red Cross and helping us make a difference in the lives of vulnerable people.
