Red Cross Bundaberg is looking for summer clothes
RED Cross Bundaberg is looking for summer clothes.
A recent burst of warm spring weather has dramatically reduced summer clothing stocks in local Red Cross shops.
"We are desperate for summer stock" says Red Cross Shops marketing manager Kate Dear.
"The biggest need right now is for ladies summer clothing, particularly dresses but anything light and in good condition will be greatly appreciated.
"Those unwanted or preloved goods filling your cupboards might be put to better use at a Red Cross shop."
Sort your clothing into three piles
"Don't be shy, it's simple to donate" said Ms Dear. "Just walk in and hand your items across the counter, or place them in the 'Donate Now' box at the entrance to each store."
Every item purchased at a Red Cross Shop also helps support the everyday work of Red Cross.
Last year Red Cross assisted more than 56,000 people affected by disasters and served over 800,000 meals to school children who might otherwise have gone to school hungry.
Red Cross programs such as Telecross, Telechat and our Community Visitors Scheme also rely heavily on the proceeds of Red Cross shops.
"If you regularly donate clothing, or shop at a Red Cross Shop you can now get 25% off future purchases with a Red Cross Shop Loyalty Card. Just ask for a card at your local Red Cross Shop when you shop or donate, and start saving today," Ms Dear said.
