Save money and save lives at a Save the Children Op Shop
Save the Children has the best Op Shops that not only save you money, they also help to save children’s lives at home and overseas. We have over 80 Op Shops all across Australia, including 16 new op shops in Sydney and NSW.
Save the Children Op Shops
You'll get more than just retail therapy when you shop at a Save the Children Op Shop, situated in convenient locations around Australia. Not only will you pick yourself up an array of recycled fashion pieces, toys, books and even some vintage and modern-day gems, your purchases will help to create better lives for children in Australia and overseas. Our Op Shops are staffed by friendly volunteers who add to the unique shopping experience.
Why Save the Children Op Shops
Here in Australia and around the world, we give a powerful voice to children and champion their rights. As a global organisation, in 2018 Save the Children directly reached more than 40 million children in 116 countries. So supporting one of our Opportunity Shops by purchasing or donating to Op Shops helps us to help make sure that every child has a bright future and that no child lives in fear.
How do I donate to Op Shops
Donations of items to sell in our retail shops are greatly appreciated. So, if you're looking for a new home for your books, bric-a-brac, furniture, clothing and homewares gathering dust on shelves, or you're wanting to make space in your wardrobe for some new threads, find out where your nearest op shop is located.
Can I volunteer for an Op Shop
Yes! All our Op Shops are run by volunteers and without the regular contribution of volunteers, we simply couldn’t open these stores. In fact, our Op Shops are such a wonderful place to be, a large proportion of our retail volunteers have been with us for many years. Find out how you can volunteer at your local store too.
