2017 Secret Santa Appeal

The DVCS Secret Santa Appeal is on again for 2017 and this year we need your help with toiletries (again) as well as double sized sheet sets and quilt covers and gift vouchers to Woolworths, Coles, K-Mart and BigW.  The toiletries will be given to people who are placed into emergency accommodation throughout the next few years and the vouchers to those who are placed into emergency accommodation over the December to February period.  The linen donated will be given to men who enter our Room4Change program.

We respectfully request that all donations are new and unused, remain in their original packaging and are from our list of items.  We create this list to ensure the items you donate are not wasted.  We could think of nothing worse than having to discard items that can’t be used, so we ask for your help in ensuring you purchase items that meet with our requirements.

Many people ask why don’t we accept complimentary hotel items or used linen.  We don’t use complimentary hotel items because our clients are placed into hotel accommodation and we want the items they receive to be a bit more special and go further than the basics provided by the hotels.  We don’t use second hand linen for hygiene reasons, but also to promote positive engagement with the men who enter our Room4Change program.

Beyond Bank branches across the ACT and Queanbeyan will be able to take your donation from 1 December until 23 December.  If you would feel more comfortable sending us your gift vouchers direct, please do so to PO Box 1922, Fyshwick ACT 2609.

Should you have any further questions please contact us on 6228 1794 or via email to
