Items collected on the Ballarat campus will be donated to St Vincent de Paul Society.Using profits from the sale of goods at their shops, St Vincent de Paul Society provides crucial material and financial support to people in need all across Australia.
When to donate
For 2021 we will be collecting donations from Monday November 29 until Friday December 10.
What to donate
With the Ballarat campus mostly closed, we will be collecting e-vouchers instead of physical donations. These vouchers will be used to purchase Christmas hamper items such as:
- Non-perishable food items
- Non-perishable/long-lasting Christmas food items such as mince pies, powdered custard, canned ham and tinned fruit
We have provided some links to businesses rated A-C on the Shop Ethical website, however, you are also welcome to send vouchers for other organisations:
Don't forget, many of the popular frequent flyer programs allow you to transfer your points into a range of gift vouchers. It’s a great way to turn often forgotten points into real impact.
Where to donate
Please send your e-vouchers to firstname.lastname@example.org and note which campus it is for (Melbourne or Ballarat) and how you would like your voucher to be spent. We will endeavour to accommodate your request.
Volunteer with us
We are also seeking volunteers to help sort, clean and pack the donated items before they are delivered to our community partners. To register your interest in volunteering please contact ACU Engagement.
