Sacred Heart Mission’s annual Give a Frock campaign is taking place this August and September, calling on women to donate their much loved but no longer worn frocks, bags and shoes.
Aimed to raise essential funds for the Woman’s House, which supports women experiencing homelessness, the op-shop campaign will be held earlier this year kicking off in August.
The ‘Give A Frock’ campaign first launched in 2015 when D’Arne Finnis wore a dress she bought from the Mission’s South Melbourne op-shop to the Brownlow Medal red carpet.
Run by ‘Women for Women’, a women-only volunteer committee, the op-shop campaign raises important funds for the Women’s House.
If you’d like to contribute to the campaign, but don’t have the time or space to hold a party, drop off you good quality frocks, shoes, bags, and accessories to any of Sacred Heart’s 12 op shops. Your donation will help fund the Women’s House.
“Anyone can easily get involved with ‘Give A Frock’ by donating outfits, hosting their own ‘frock’ party, by shopping at any of Sacred Heart Mission’s op shops or attending any of our fashion events.” – Stylist Elliot Garnaut
