Your local op shop needs you!
This is the inaugural National Op Shop Week (September 24-30), run by the action group Do Something! which was founded by the environmentalist John Dee, and Endeavour Foundation is looking for an increase in donations and volunteers for Endeavour Foundation Recycled Clothing stores.
National Op Shop Week aims to create awareness about the reliance of charitable shops on public donations. These contributions help to recycle pre-loved clothing, bric-a-brac, shoes and accessories, which is good for the environment and raises funds for good causes.
Recent studies show that donations are down. This has left many stores like Endeavour Foundation Recycled Clothing with less clothing and other items. This coincides with an increase in the amount of unusable items dumped at charity bins resulting in increased waste costs.
Endeavour Foundation’s Consumer Businesses General Manager Leanne Rudd says this is an issue which needs to be addressed urgently.
“Endeavour Foundation Recycled Clothing stores rely on the public donating good quality clothes and items so that we can support people with a disability,” Ms Rudd said.
“Our stores have been affected by the increase in dumping so we urge people to have a spring clean of their closet and to donate the good quality items to Endeavour Foundation Recycled Clothing.”
“We are always keen to hear from people who have some time to donate as our volunteers are the lifeblood of our organisation.”
