    Default Donating baby stuff

    I have a bunch of baby stuff I will not use including unopened product samples (formula, nappies, creams etc) clothes of either gender, some unused. Nothing is worth selling really. I know the clothes can go to op shops but who can I donate the samples to? It seems a shame to throw out perfectly good items someone else could use. I am in eastern suburbs melbourne.

    There are a few great organisations who would love your donation.

    Here is one I love!

    http://www.stkildamums.org/home

    They are based in St Kilda, hence the name but service all across Victoria!

    "​​St Kilda Mums supports children and parents experiencing hardship. We provide material aid in practical partnership with maternal child health nurses and social service agencies. All donations go directly to the families that they support, and each item to someone who specifically needs it."

    yes. or may the salvation army or similar... a lot of the people that go to the salvation army for food, bill help etc are pregnant women on newstart and are left with next to no money after paying rent.... they cant buy things for their baby until they start getting parenting payments.. im sure your kindness will make someone very happy

    I gave that stuff to St Kilda Mums. They are happy to receive open packets of nappies/etc. I never knew what to do about that kind of stuff in the past. Have a look at their webpage or facebook page for donation details. They support over 100 charities across Melbourne.

    I asked this question last week and someone suggested googling GIVIT where you can list your items for a lot of different charities

    Exactly the kind of place I was looking for! Great, thank you very much.
