Donating material aid is a tangible way to help people experiencing homelessness in Melbourne.
Launch Housing works with various partners to ensure that donated goods provide the right help, at the right time. We also run donation drives at key times of the year to meet the needs of the people and families we support.
Launch Housing is running its annual toy drive to bring joy to the over 400 children and young people 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 pressure that is often felt by families over the festive season.
We are accepting new unwrapped toys, shopping gift cards and vouchers for children and young people aged 0-17 years old.
We ask that donations are gender-inclusive and unwrapped if possible. We are unable to accept pre-loved items, thank you.
All donations must be received in the week of Monday, 27 November – Friday, 1 December 2022 to ensure we can get them out to families ahead of the holidays.
If you’re unable to drop off toys this year, we’re also accepting gifts vouchers via email.
