Give A Frock

Give A Frock

Our annual Give a Frock campaign is taking place during August and September 2019, calling on women to donate their much loved but no longer worn frocks, bags and shoes that are taking up space in their wardrobes.

By ‘Giving A Frock’ you are helping support women in the community who are experiencing homelessness and disadvantage, who seek our services at the Women’s House in St Kilda.

Give A Frock Parties

We're calling out to women, business offices, design houses and companies to host 'Frock Parties' in order to collect frocks, bags, shoes and accessories for our campaign from 1 to 28 August.

Donation Day

Saturday, 17 August 2019

If you'd like to contribute to the campaign, but don't have the time or space to hold a party, we invite you to drop off you good quality frocks, shoes, bags and accessories to any of our 12 op shops. Your donation will help fund the Women's House.

Each op shop will have a special Give a Frock donation point, making your drop off a simple process. Meet and greet our ambassadors Elliot Garnaut and Anna Byrne at our Commercial Road, Prahran store as they visually merchandise the store and conduct live TV interviews.
