The Off Your Back Coat Drive

Published 25 May 2024
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. 

For more than two decades, the Off Your Back winter coat drive has been a lifeline, ensuring warmth for those who need it most. Over 300,000 high-quality, preloved coats have been gathered from the compassionate hearts of the community and redistributed. 

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 next to the Market information office in Centre Aisle

Collection is from 1 June to 31 August 2024.
