Make a Donation and Support the Canberra Community
Will you help us help those in need? We work hard throughout the year to help the local community through our community food pantries, clothing program and op shop, crisis support and accommodation support services. If you make a donation to us, you become a part of the social impact we create.
Our community support services (social programs) help those in need by providing support for food, clothing, accommodation, and emergency relief. Every year, we support almost 15,000 vulnerable people who come to our community food pantries to access free and heavily discounted food, household and personal care items. And as always, you can help us in this mission too, 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 (everyday meals, baby needs, tinned food etc) and other essential items (personal hygiene items, cleaning products etc) 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. For more information on what clothes you can donate and where to drop off your clothing donations, visit our Donate Clothes page.
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.
