DO THE ITEMS REALLY NEED
TO BE NEW?

DEFINITELY

There are not too many things that we are adamant about at TEC but this really is important to us.

We view your donations as gifts to those in need. 

WHY?

Recipients are often experiencing homelessness or fleeing dangerous situations, and do not have many of their own items.   

Giving the gift of new items to people as they arrive in crisis and temporary accommodation is something we believe that will empower the individuals.

STILL A NO

We often have people say "I've only used it once, it seems like such a waste to throw it away".

 

We suggest asking a friend or family member if they would like to try the item. 

DO YOU ACCEPT MENSTRUAL CUPS?

Read More >

NO, WE DON'T

The care instructions for menstrual cups are just not conducive to women in need. They are required to be washed every day and sterilised at the end of each cycle.

 

Many of the women we service do not have access to adequate facilities to ensure that they can safely use the cups. 

DO YOU TAKE FURNITURE OR CLOTHING?

NO, WE DON'T

There are a number of great organisations around Perth who already do this. 

We recommend the following groups:

WHERE DO THE DONATIONS GO?

Read More >

EXCELLENT QUESTION!

Your donations go to organisations who deal directly with people in need. We work with a number of refuges, drop in centres and outreach services to make sure your donations get to where are needed. 

CAN I ORGANISE A COLLECTION WITH MY FAMILY, FRIENDS OR COLLEAGUES?

ABSOLUTELY!

We love it when groups get together to generate a collection of donations.
