Garage sale donations

Thank you for thinking of supporting our next garage sale on 4 November 2017 by making a donation.

There are a couple of ways to get donations to us:

  1. Drop your items off to Kippax Uniting Community Centre in the days immediately before the sale (Thursday or Friday). We will have volunteers available to accept donations on Thursday 2 November from 10.00am to 9pm and Friday 4 November from 9:00am to 6pm.  Please note that we are not able to accept donations outside of these times.
  2. Drop off items to Storage King BelconnenWe can accept items at Storage King Belconnen in the weeks before a sale.  Call the office on (02) 6254 1733 to organise a drop-off time.
  3. Arrange for your large items to be collected by our volunteers.  We can collect some large items on Thursday 2 November or Friday 3 November.  Call the office if you have something you’d like us to pick up.  We have a limited number of volunteers and so, while we try our best, cannot guarantee we will be able to meet every request.

  • books and magazines
  • toys and games
  • clothing (baby’s, children’s, men’s and women’s)
  • linen
  • furniture and appliances
  • plants and gardening equipment
