As the cool breezes roll in, heading towards winter, Big Group Hug 's focus and priorities turn towards the kids in need. They believe every child deserves to feel warm and comfortable. Unfortunately, that's not always the case with many children in our community living without the most basic necessities - warm clothing and bedding. And this is where you can help. Big Group Hug are asking you to donate new and pre-loved winter clothing and bed linen for children aged 1-16 (sizes 4-16 most needed) for distribution to the families they support in the cold winter months, and year-round. Go one step further and spread the word to family, friends, colleagues, teammates and neighbours, so they too can help the kids out, and drop your collections into one of Big Group Hug's locations.

If you'd like to really help drive this message across, there are posters, social media designs and other resources to help you on your way. See here for more information , and to register your collection. Find a full list of what is needed for the children, drop-off locations in Thomastown, Airport West, and Tarneit, and operating hours for drop off. If you don't have any appropriate clothing for the age group required, don't be shy - you can simply donate some dollars to help out. It's a good feeling to think outside ourselves, and the joy you are spreading for those desperately in need.

Learn more about donating goods here , and find a drop-down list of items that cannot be accepted. It's a no-brainer but you are humbly asked to only donate items that are clean, in good working condition, and complies with Australian safety standards. The rule of thumb - don't donate something you would not be happy to receive yourself. Dedicated, generous volunteers work long hard hours sorting things. Please don't make their job harder, or waste their donated time with unwanted or inappropriate items. That is one of the biggest issues Big Group Hug has. The condition of the donations. They want their boxes of love and goodwill to spark joy, and provide relief, confidence and dignity. Have a heart and don't use this drive as a dumping ground for mouldy, ripped, frayed, pilling, or stained/dirty items - for the kids. Head to the Facebook page for a series of gorgeous images put together as a simple guide that covers all categories, including sleep, feeding, bathroom, clothing, electrical, toys, shoes, and travel, to make donating to Big Group Hug a breeze! Get in on time to keep them warm this winter of 2024.
