RSPCA op shops are appealing for more donations to help vulnerable people keep warm through winter, and to help animals in need.
Liz Irvine, RSPCA Victoria’s op shop network supervisor, said RSPCA Victoria’s op shops relied on donations and community support to continue their critical work of caring for animals.
“To support us in our work we’re calling on the local community in Mornington and surrounds to consider clearing out unused items this winter and donating them to the RSPCA op shop,” Irvine said.
“We have recently experienced a significant drop in the donation of goods across the state, including in Mornington. While we don’t know exactly why we’ve seen this decrease, we suspect this is due to winter, when people are generally less active and donations decrease.
“Winter is a busy time for RSPCA Victoria, with more than 3200 animals expected to come through our doors. Donating and shopping at the RSPCA op shop is a fantastic way to support animals in need while grabbing a bargain.”
The RSPCA has op shops in Mornington, Frankston and Chelsea.
