Easter Holiday Clear Out

The St Vincent de Paul Society NSW is calling out to all Northern Beaches and Central Coast households to use the spare time over the Easter school holidays to do a mini de-clutter of wardrobes, bookshelves, toy chests, kitchens and garages.

With families enjoying school holidays and looking for activities to keep busy, now is a great time to involve the whole family and de-clutter the house and garage. 

Good quality, but unused or unwanted items in the house, such as clothing and accessories for men, women and children, unused kitchen items and bric-a-brac, pre-read books, outgrown toys, excess blankets and bedding and little-used sports equipment can all be donated to Vinnies.

Maureen Roast, Executive Officer for the St Vincent de Paul Society Broken Bay said that donations are gratefully accepted and sold in Vinnies Shops to raise funds for critical services across NSW.

“Funds generated by our Shops in NSW account for 47 per cent of our total income. This money is used to fund our initiatives such as homelessness services, women’s refuges, drug and alcohol counselling, home visitation, material aid, vouchers, social justice advocacy, and refugee and migrant assistance.

“Here in the Broken Bay Central Council Vinnies provided over $1.4M worth of assistance to the local community, assisting over 6,000 people.

“We rely heavily on the generosity of our community to donate good quality pre-loved items that can be sold in Vinnies Shops to support the good works that assist local mums, dads, children and indiviudals.”
