St Pat's Community Store Minderoo

St Pat’s Community Store

St Pat’s Community Store offers free or low-cost clothing, furniture, new-home starter packs, homewares, cookware, kids clothes and toys and more to people who are experiencing or exiting homelessness, or on low-incomes, so you can have the same shopping experience and choice as people not currently needing support.

Open to everyone in the community, you can come and grab a bargain, stop and chat with our volunteers or donate your good quality items to us.

We offer 25% off to people with Centrelink Concession Cards/Healthcare Cards. 

From clothing to cleaning products, furniture to homewares, people can shop for the items they need in a safe, warm environment without feeling segregated or judged.

Supported by Minderoo Foundation and staffed by volunteers, the Community Store provides a way for people who might find traditional welfare pathways confronting to connect with available resources and supports.

Donating Goods

St Pat’s relies on your donations to keep our Community Store well-stocked. The money we raise from any items we sell goes back into funding our services and programs, helping us support our community’s most vulnerable.
