Win­ter clothes call

Melville Times - - Opinion -

VINNIES needs women’s win­ter cloth­ing af­ter ma­jor de­mand for the char­ity’s as­sis­tance in re­cent months.

The com­bi­na­tion of a long, cold win­ter and in­creases in the cost of liv­ing and util­ity costs mean more peo­ple have been turn­ing to or­gan­i­sa­tions such as Vinnies.

Vinnies state dis­tri­bu­tion cen­tre manager An­drew Milne said the added de­mand had cre­ated a short­fall in stocks, most no­tably in women’s win­ter cloth­ing.

“De­spite the large num­ber of cloth­ing items sorted daily, there is a sig­nif­i­cant short­fall in women’s win­ter stock and this will have a sig­nif­i­cant im­pact on sup­plies for next year,” Mr Milne said.

“We also ac­cept do­na­tions of clean, good qual­ity men’s and chil­dren’s cloth­ing, blan­kets, bed­ding and kitchen­ware.”

Peo­ple can do­nate at their lo­cal Vinnies shop or at the state dis­tri­bu­tion cen­tre in Can­ning Vale.
