Make a Donation and Support the Canberra Community
If you make a donation to us, you become a part of the social impact we create. We help those in need by providing support for food, clothing, accommodation, and emergency relief. We also provide social and recreational programs and support services for people with a disability and seniors in the community. Our alternative special assistance school offers education and learning for students who struggle in mainstream schooling environments.
With your help, we can continue to enrich the lives of people living in Canberra and the surrounding ACT region. You can donate to Communities@Work and show your support in several ways:
Make a Monetary Donation
Your monetary donations will be used to stock our community pantries with food and essential items, to help the most vulnerable and disadvantaged people in our community. Your donations will also help our support services for clothing and accommodation. We may also use your donations to provide emergency relief to an individual or family in need.

Donate Food and Other Essentials
We are always happy to accept donations of food and other essential items (such as personal hygiene items) for our community pantries. For more information on what you can donate, where to drop off your donations, and how your donations can help, visit our Donate Essentials page.
Your clothing donations support our clothing program and Best Dressed Store, helping vulnerable people in the Canberra community get dressed for interviews, work, special occasions and other important events.

Donate for Christmas
Christmas is an important time of the year for us. Each year we run an intensive Christmas campaign, collecting donations for food and gifts to bring joy to families and individuals, who otherwise wouldn’t be able to celebrate the occasion. From October we encourage the community to donate to our Christmas appeal – food, gifts, or monetary donations are all appreciated.
