Donate things

Regretfully, the St Kilda Mums board and I have made the decision to stay closed for goods donations until further notice. Following the government's advice to strictly limit travel outside the home, and for the safety of our staff, this measure is unavoidable at this time. As an organisation our staff are still working hard to help families in need access vital nursery equipment and other necessary items. Thanks for sticking with us.

To donate visit our HQ: 110 Balliang Street, Geelong South. Our opening times are here.

We rehome essential kids and baby items needed by families facing multiple disadvantages. Please see the list below and note that we don't rehome electrical items, household furniture (like dining tables) or adult clothing (including maternity).

✅ denotes items we can rehome and ❌ items we cannot. Please read our safety guidelines for the items with ✴️. 

Press Control or Command F to quickly search for a particular item in this list. 

If you are unsure about an item or how to deliver the donation please just email us. Our opening times are here.

We are passionate about repairing things, e.g. pram wheels, ripped material - but it is not always possible. Please email us a photo and a detailed description if there is a fault. Please don't donate anything that is broken, damaged, torn, ripped, stained or faulty.

As a simple rule, if there's something wrong with it then we can't rehome it (click here for the print version)
