SINCE Lifeline’s Pennant Hills store opened in September it has had a steady stream of customers and as a result is in desperate need of more donations.

Store manager Sophie Honess said the store is particularly short on homewares but would also love more toys, homewares and clothes.

“There are a lot of people who need winter clothing and it is a great cleansing feeling when you clean out your wardrobe,” she said.

“When you give clothes to a charity store you’re not just cleaning out your wardrobe, you’re helping to save lives as well.”

Ms Honess said the store’s high-quality clothing and customer service had ensured its success in the community, with the shop well ahead in terms of sales.

“We do treasure what we get donated and we show that appreciation with the way we present the store,” she said.

“We take pride in our shop.”

The only items the store cannot accept at the shop is electrical equipment and baby things like prams and car seats.

Books can be donated to the Lifeline Book Fairs. If people would like to donate a large item, or a number of items, Lifeline can send a truck and pick them up.

The store is at 3/3 Hillcrest Rd, Pennant Hills. Phone: 9446 4341
