Trash & Treasure loves your donations!
Clean out the cupboards, go through your wardrobes, recycle some of those games and books the kids are bored with, and clear the garage of things you never use anymore.  Trash & Treasure need your donations!

Thank you to everyone who has already sent in their donations.  Please keep them coming in – the earlier the better, as it makes the massive job of sorting much more manageable.

Please consider the condition of your donations.  Think - would you pay money for it?
 
Volunteers:
Trash & Treasure is a huge enterprise that can only succeed with lots of help from our school community.
Sorting donations is our biggest effort, but there are other jobs that would suit someone who works during the day or has pre-schoolers at home.  We need volunteers for:
Sorting - the massive task of sorting and pricing donations can be lots of fun with some friends, a cuppa and a sense of humour.  J  You can sort whenever it suits you (e.g. when your kids are at before/after school activities).






Homework – some items (jewellery, for example) can be taken home to sort and prep for sale.  Some items need checking for complete pieces (e.g. puzzles, lego) or minor repairs.

Online sales – we sell some of our higher priced items online.  If you’re experienced with ebay or facebook buy&sell we need you!

Advertising – online ads for donations and festival day

Setup - we need a large team of enthusiastic helpers to set up the hall before fete day. Sign up here


If you’re able to help in any way, please contact Robyn on 0419 789 047.
