Donating Goods To Help The Homeless

Donating needed goods is a tangible way to help people experiencing homelessness in Australia. It provides immediate relief to thousands of people each year.


By donating a hamper at this festive time, you’ll be lifting the spirits of vulnerable Melburnians doing it tough. Your gift shows them that you care, and provides essentials that are in great need at this time.

What is needed this festive season?

Launch Housing is running a toy drive to bring joy to the 390 children and families we support who are at risk of or have experienced homelessness.

Not only do the toys make Christmas extra special for the kids who receive them, but these donations relieve the financial stress that is often felt by families over the festive season.

We are currently accepting new unwrapped toys for children aged 0-16 years old.

The best toys to donate are ones that you would be happy to give or to receive yourself. We cannot accept second-hand items, thank you.

All donations must be received by Friday, 2nd December 2022.

If purchasing a toy isn’t possible for you this year, we’re also accepting gifts of Coles/Woolworths vouchers.
