Lifeline Shop Donations

When you donate to and buy at Lifeline Shops, you are helping save lives.

IMPORTANT: We are not currently taking donations during lockdown period, please hold onto your book donations and we will happily take them on our return. All our bins have been closed in the Illawarra, only Berry and Shoalhaven are open and Minnamurra when the waste facility is open. 

The Lifeline Shops are the financial cornerstone of Lifeline South Coast. They provide the largest portion of funding and allow the continuation of Lifeline’s vital 24 hour telephone crisis support service in the Illawarra and South Coast on 13 11 14.

Moving, downsizing, spring-cleaning or just creating space on your shelves? Please consider donating to your local Lifeline Shops.

Our shops rely on donations from the public and are staffed mostly by volunteers. Your clean, preloved goods can help us generate funds for Lifeline South Coast’s life-saving services.
