Donating items

Friends with Dignity couldn’t do what we do without our generous donors. While we don’t like saying no to your generous offers for furniture and household goods due to lack of storage there are restrictions on what we can and cannot accept. We only accept good quality items on an ‘as needed’ basis to transform our Sanctuaries.

When we say good quality, we use the ‘would you give this to your best friend to use’ rule. Our goal is to make each Sanctuary into a beautiful haven for each family.

High demand items

Our only exception to an ‘as needed basis’ are items that we know we need for every sanctuary. Our specialist coordinators are always on the look out for:

  • sheets, linen, towels, doona insets and pillows
  • kitchen cutlery and crockery
  • laundry items
  • toileteries
  • gift vouchers for purchasing things like power boards and cords, picture hooks, curtain rods, fresh flowers and fruit for the dining room and those other little bits and pieces.

Kitchen

New toasters, kettles, sandwich presses, microwave ovens, cutlery and utensils, dinner sets, pots and pans, cutting boards, sharp knives, baking items, storage containers, microwave container, fruit bowls and vases, serving platters, drinking glasses and plastic dinnerware.

Furniture and household items

We post the items we need on our Friends with Dignity Facebook page. The items listed on our sanctuary or donation request posts are exactly what we require at that particular time and what we can accept. If the items are not on those lists, unfortunately at this stage we are unable to accept the donation.

How to donate furniture and household items
