Lifeline Op Shops Charity Bins & Donation Bins Near You
Lifeline was established in 1963 by Reverend Dr. Sir Alan Walker. It is one of the few charity organizations that was initiated in Australia itself although the operation has now spread to other regions. It is said that the Reverend wanted to start charity work after he came in contact with a man whose life was in utter crisis and so he wanted to end it. Little could he do for that man but he made it his life mission to help families in need so no one dies in isolation or of hunger.
Currently, Lifeline has the support of more than 11,000 volunteers who come forward with donations from all over Australia. It has maintained a wide network of op shops and donation bins across the country where it gathers the items such as clothing, books, furniture, accessories, homewares, kitchenwares, etc. We recommend that you call ahead to confirm that the location you plan to donate to is accepting the items you have.
In addition to the charity work that the organization performs, it has a 24/7 hotline 13 11 14 that can be contacted anytime for urgent support and assistance. As per the states, the hotline receives more than 1800 calls every day.
Please make sure that you donate usable items only. Donation is not meant to be used as an excuse to clear your closet of stained, smelly clothing. You must come forward with items that are in good condition.
