You've found the blog for Sandlewood Op Shop.
We are a small not-for-profit shop in Moorooka (Brisbane) run by volunteers.
Profits from the shop go towards our work with disadvantaged and less fortunate members of the community to help make their lives brighter.

current appeals

Just to give you a quick update these are the current appeals we have running :

1. Gift Cards for Flood Clients & Disadvantaged Clients
We give clients these gift vouchers/cards to enable them to buy specific requirements such as (but not limited to) groceries, petrol, personal items such as new underwear etc. We can't always have things in every size, so this means if we can give them a gift card they can get exactly what they need when they need it ie. NOW!

2. Beanies, Gloves & Mittens for remote Indigenous Community
We have a remote Indigenous community who are in need of warm items such as beanies, gloves and mittens to get them through this winter.  Handknits or shop boughts are welcome.  Also warm clothes such as tracksuits in very good-new condition are also welcomed (Larger sizes requested).

3. Glue Sticks for Community Kindy
We assist a community based non profit kindy who support families at risk and disadvantaged families.  This community-based kindy receives no funding for craft supplies, & are desperate for a large quantity of non-toxic glue sticks for children's craft.  We help them as much as we can with regards to suitable craft supplies, but we don't have any glue sticks!

4. New Ladies and Mens Winter PJs all sizes

Some of our flood affected clients are living in houses with stud walls and concrete floors so badly need warm nightwear. Our rural clients are finding it difficult making ends meet and also find it hard to obtain winter nightwear so we have been giving any suitable donations to those who are struggling.

If you are able to help out with any of these donations, they can be dropped off at Shop 5/407 Beaudesert Road Moorooka or posted to the same address.  

You may see a "no more donations" sign at the front of the store, which is with regards to general donations as at present the shop is undergoing some major alterations and space is at an absolute premium.  Please do not be deterred from dropping in appeal items if you see this sign, however please don't be offended if we can't take your other donations at this time.
