    Default Where to donate toys, books and non-perishable food items?

    For people who are struggling this time of year and can't afford these things for various reasons?

    I went to Coles this week and they have jars of Raguletto pasta sauce for $1 and jars of Chicken Tonight stir-through sauce for $2 so I bought a few of each thing, and also those small tins of dog food in the 6 pack were on special for under $5 so I got 2 packs of those. I'm guessing the RSPCA would use those.

    Just wondering about donating other items though. We don't really use jars of sauces, but I will keep some of them because it may come in handy if we get flooded in, particularly if we lose power. I have a gas cooker and can boil pasta on that, then just add a jar of sauce. We can get stuck in the house for up to 3 weeks during the flood season. But I bought heaps of them thinking they would be great to donate to people in some charity drive, but now I'm not sure where to donate them.

    Also toys and books, I'm thinking the K Mart wishing tree should be up pretty soon?

    Where does everyone else donate these items?

    They might be still taking stuff for the The 2010 Mayor's Christmas Tree Appeal

    You could all ways give to that.

    Either your local council or the salvos or any other similar charity. We do a food drive every year at work and take it all to the salvos, they have a cutoff date that they need it by so they have time to distribute the hampers.
