Want to donate to our Emergency Aid?

The vast majority of the items that FOR gifts to people seeking asylum are donated by people in the local community – an act of recycling as well as compassion. Would you like to donate good quality second-hand items to people seeking asylum in Melbourne and support our RECOVER program?

The most common items we collect are:

  • Large household items – couches, washing machines, beds, fridges, dining tables, drawers, and rugs
  • Children’s items – bassinets, cots, clothing, prams, blankets and nappies (we have stringent safety requirements for children’s items.)
  • Home entertainment – radios, televisions, laptops
  • Kitchen items – cooking utensils, crockery, cutlery, toasters, rice cookers, kettles, knife sets, etc
  • Gift cards – from stores such as Kmart, Big W and Target
  • Food items (Please take a look here for more information)
  • Toiletries, brand new socks and underwear
  • Smartphones (in working order, with charger)
  • Clean, good quality blankets, coats & jackets
  • Brand new toys
  • Linen – pillows, blankets, sheet sets
  • Garden tools
  • Sewing machines and materials
  • Computers and laptops
  • Bikes and bike parts
