Donating Items

These are items that we need for clients in Auckland:

  • pressy cards (minimum you can load is $25) - this is the easiest way for us to support clients with a range of urgent, basic needs. 
  • food: non-perishable only, e.g. peanut butter, jelly, rice, spaghetti, spaghetti sauce, canned ravioli, packaged meals, canned fish/meat, powdered infant formulas, boxed meals, canned vegetables, canned fruit
  • disposable nappies
  • cell phones in good working condition with a charger and prepaid SIM cards

If you would like to donate any of the above items to Shine, please email with as much detail as possible about what you wish to donate.  

We also sometimes need:

  • New high quality items of 'money can't buy' experiences to auction at fundraising events
  • Items/services that we need to run our office and services 

If you have goods or services in these categories that you'd like to donate, please email with as much detail as possible about what you wish to donate.  

If you are donating pressy cards, you can simply drop them off at Shine's office during business hours: Ground Floor, 409 New North Rd, Kingsland. Or order card online and have them sent to Shine at: PO Box 90279, Victoria Street West, Auckland 1142.  

“Staying at the Shine Refuge has been an absolute life changing experience for myself and my daughters. I cannot begin to explain how grateful I am for the enormous amount of help we have received from the ladies at the house.”
