Clear out your unwanted winter clothes for a good cause.

I received an email this week about the need for warm clothes for visitors coming to Melbourne for the International AIDS Conference at the end of July. Many of the delegates are from warm, low income countries.

Details of how to donate clothes are at the end. Thanks for your help.

Spread the word!

The International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2014) is the largest ever health or development meeting 
to be held in Australia.  
AIDS 2014 will be held here in Melbourne from 20 – 25 July, 2014 and we need your help! 
Approximately 14, 000 participants are expected to attend the Conference and various associated events.  Many  of  our  delegates  are  coming  from warmer climates  and  some  from  low  income countries. As we know, the temperatures don’t get to high here in the month of July and the MPG is 
partnering with Red Cross to provide low cost warm clothing.  
This is where you come in – we are asking you to dig deep and donate some winter woollies for delegates to purchase during AIDS 2014. Donated clothing will be sold (at very low costs) within the Global Village at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) where the conference will 
be  held.  Proceeds  raised  from  your  donation  will  be  donated  to  Red Cross  to  assist  their humanitarian work, supporting vulnerable people within our community. 
We are looking for donations of women's and men's winter clothing & accessories such as: 
•  Tops, T.shirts, Shirts, Long Sleeve Blouses  
•  Knitwear, Cardigans, Jumpers, Pullovers  
•  Jeans, Pants, Skirts, Tights 
•  Coats, Jackets 
•  Shoes, Scarves, Beanies, Gloves 
AIDS 2014 is only 3 weeks away! Your urgency in donating goods is greatly appreciated.  
Red Cross Shops can collect the merchandise or alternatively, it can be dropped at our head office location, 23-47 Villiers Street, North Melbourne, VIC. 
To make a donation please call Bianca Wendt, Red Cross Shops Merchandise Manager, directly on (03) 8327 7867 or 0408 300 470.
