How can you help

Sunshine Bendigo is a  resource centre that re-homes new and pre-loved baby goods and nursery equipment to families in need.

By re-homing pre-loved goods, we ensure that the benefits are two-fold, we save items from ending up in the landfill and we help those who are less fortunate to celebrate their time of motherhood with practical gifts. 

If you have nursery equipment, clothes or toys that you no longer use, we can get it to someone who really needs it.  We  encourage the community to re-think before they throw away perfectly good baby gear, consider the families that could be helped by these simple, but generous donations. 

Donating any of these essential items to Sunshine Bendigo, help us make a difference in the lives of others
