Vinnies in Melbourne Australia get massive gift of furniture from 133 restyled apartments involved in a $2 million refurbishment of the Quest Docklands Serviced Apartments
“… the massive overhaul of the apartments has benefited the St Vincent de Paul Society too, with Quest Docklands donating all of the replaced furniture, bedding and electrical equipments including TVs and audio visual equipment to the charity. St Vincent de Paul Society state president Tony Tome said “We were delighted when Brendan came to us with this offer. A donation this size of goods that are great quality is something that doesn’t come along very often and something we can put to excellent use”
They will use the items to meet requests for welfare assistance and any surplus items will be sold through Vinnies Centres with the profits used to fund local welfare work.
