Have a spring clean-out and help save lives
Lifeline Macarthur is urgently calling for donations of adult and children’s clothes, blankets and home wares.
“We have been part of the local community for nearly 40 years,” said Lifeline Macarthur CEO, Tony Hercok. “We urgently need clothing, blankets and home wares for our seven retail stores, and it’s vitally important because every dollar we raise helps save lives.”
Mr Hercok also pointed out that all donated items need to be of resellable quality. “Remember if you wouldn’t lend it to a friend, then don’t donate it.”
Donations can be dropped off at any of Lifeline Macarthur’s seven stores – Moss Vale, Tahmoor, Camden, Campbelltown, Narellan, Ingleburn and Liverpool as well as at Lifeline Macarthur head office in Smeaton Grange.
