Why donate?
 
  • Together we give back to the community
    Diabetes Victoria would not be able to support those living in your community with diabetes if it not for the generosity of businesses and individuals. Each time you donate your preloved, unwanted clothing, you are making a positive impact for your community. Each donation you make brings Diabetes Victoria that much closure to finding a cure to diabetes.
 
  • Together we do our part in reducing the clothing footprint
    Victorians are estimated to discard a total of 38,572,340 kg of clothing and shoes annually – that’s the combined weight of 5500 elephants. To date, Diabetes Victoria recycles an average 3.8 million kg of clothing annually and in doing so, helps reduce the annual clothing footprint by 10 percent. With your continued support, together, we can rescue even more clothing from ending up in landfills to help maintain a positive impact on our environment.

Diabetes Victoria Recycles

Diabetes Victoria Clothing Collection has been in operation for over 16 years. Approached by Savers back in 1998, Diabetes Victoria took on the partnership alliance and is now the main charity that supplies all Savers stores in Victoria. The partnership has allowed Diabetes Victoria to generate revenue from the on sale of all donated clothing, funding vital diabetes research programs. This partnership gives Diabetes Victoria the opportunity to recycle your donations and save them from ending up in landfill.
