Hotels Have Hearts COVID-19
Relief Initiative

NSW Hoteliers have heeded the call of Hotels Have Hearts to help Vinnies keep vital services operating during COVID-19 lockdown.

We have repurposed our hotel into a community drop off zone for donations and have redeployed our young, heathy and hygiene-savvy workforce to serve as volunteers.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays between 11am-3pm, our venue will be staffed with two hospitality volunteers to receive donations. Whilst remaining vigilant with social distancing rules, we encourage people to gather up their old clothes or blankets to pass onto people in need.

Members of the public are asked to stay in their car while a hotel volunteer accepts their donations directly, working under the strictest safety and hygiene protocols. We ask you to please ensure all donated items are in a sealed garbage bag for safe processing.

Thank you for your ongoing support of Vinnies during such a difficult time for all.
