If you’re moving house during the festive season, you’ve probably noticed that you have quite a bit of unwanted, good quality items lying around. Moving house is the perfect time to declutter, but with so much involved in the process of relocating, selling it or finding it a new home can be time consuming, stressful and difficult.
Help make a difference this Christmas with the Grace Removals and St Vincent de Paul Society (Vinnies) partnership.
Move house, make a difference
Having noticed a lot of good quality items being thrown away, Grace and The St Vincent de Paul Society teamed up to rehouse unwanted items and help Australians in need.
When packing up your home for your move with Grace this festive season, simply pack any good quality items that you no longer need or want into our ‘move house, make a difference’ cartons and we’ll will deliver it to Vinnies on your behalf.
Vinnies sell these items in their stores to raise much needed funds to support society’s most vulnerable across a wide range of national programs. Hire a removalist who cares about the local community and give back this Christmas with Vinnies.
