Suitable donations

Through the generosity of our local community, our storage of toy and book donations are now at capacity. As a result, we are currently unable to accept donations of toys or books at this time. Donations of men's, women's and children's clothing are in demand and can be dropped at your local Lifeline Shop during business hours. We thank you for your generosity and understanding.

Every donation counts and we appreciate your generosity, which is why it's important to know that there are some donations we can accept and others we can't. Government regulations and saleability often dictate what is suitable and there are certain items we are unfortunately unable to accept.
