A new Red Cross shop will open its doors in Toowoomba on Wednesday 30 August, offering new and pre-loved clothes, accessories and homewares at affordable prices, as well as a convenient drive-in donation depot.
The store at 236 Ruthven Street will raise funds to support Red Cross’ vital work in Australia and our region, helping people in times of emergency, personal hardship and disadvantage.
Head of Retail, Richard Wood says, “The new Red Cross shop will be a great place to pick up a unique variety of products that appeal to the fashionista and budget-conscious shopper alike.”
“The store also has a convenient drive-through so locals can drop off their high quality donations such as clothing, accessories and homewares. Unfortunately we cannot accept furniture, electrical items or goods that are stained or torn.”
“We value quality donations and the best thing is that funds raised from the sale of your pre-loved goods will go towards helping people overcome crisis in communities at home and further afield.”
The Toowoomba store also provides volunteer opportunities for those looking to pitch in. Volunteers can assist in everything from customer service and sales through to visual merchandising and sorting donations. To sign up, register your interest online at www.redcross.org.au/volunteer.
