Off Your Back Coat Drive

Off Your Back Coat Drive
Drop off your pre-loved coats at the Market to provide warmth to those in need

South Melbourne Market are once again partnering with the Off Your Back coat drive this winter. The program is proudly in its 20th year and has grown significantly over the years.

Over 115,000 homeless Australians will be freezing through another cold winter, particularly here in Melbourne. Donating a pre-loved coat or jacket to Off Your Back will provide warmth and some comfort to those in need. 

Coats and jackets in good wearable condition will be accepted for both adults and children. The coats are distributed through various charities, homeless programs and soup kitchens across Melbourne.  

The donation drop off box is located at the top of the stairs in Centre Aisle (entry to rooftop car park).

Collection is from 1 June to 31 August 2021.
