Op Shop donations

LCN no longer operates our Freebeez Op Shop. However, an op shop will remain open under the management of the Seventh Day Adventist Church.

We encourage the community to continue supporting their op shop by dropping off donations of pre-loved items directly to the Church, located at 57 Walla Ave, Griffith.

They welcome donations of clothing for women, men and children, kitchenware, blankets and linen, toys, books and other useful household items. As Yambil St is still undergoing significant roadworks, we are unable to accept any donations at the LCN office.

We are very grateful to the Church for taking over the op shop at this time, so that it can remain open to the public.
