Volunteer

Volunteers are the lifeblood of our organisation. Without them we could not operate. We rely on them to work in the shop and on our management committee.

We would love to hear from you. Pop into the Op Shop, call the Shop Manager on 9699 6839 or visit out Volunteers Page for more information.

Financial donations

SMCC is a registered charity and financial donations are tax deductible. We have DGR status (Deductible Gift Recipient).

Your financial donation will be added to the pool of funding raised at the Op Shop that is used to provide grants to community groups. Expanding our capacity to channel funds back into the community is our key purpose.
