Donating With Purpose: How to Make a Quality Op Shop Donation

At Cancer Wellness Support, our mantra of “if it’s not friend-worthy, it’s not CWS-worthy” reflects our commitment to maintaining high standards in everything we do, especially in our op shops at Katoomba and Penrith. 

When you donate to us, you’re not just giving away unwanted items. You’re also contributing to our mission of supporting individuals and families affected by cancer. We always welcome donations of clean and high quality men’s, women’s, and children’s clothing, homewares, toys, books, and furniture. 

Examples of items that we love to receive include:

By ensuring that your donations are in good condition, you’re helping us raise vital funds for our comprehensive program of individual complementary therapies, workshops, counselling, events and retreats.

On the flip side, every dollar spent on waste removal from poor quality donations takes away from our ability to provide essential support services. 

For every industrial bin load, it’s costing us $3,000 per month – which could be used for 85 individual therapies (based on the standard rate of $35)

Examples of poor quality items include:

By donating with care, you’re making a meaningful difference in the lives of people living with cancer and their families. 

Together, let’s continue to make a positive impact.
