Volunteer in Doncare Op Shops | Templestowe and Tunstall Square



Doncare’s op shops, nestled in the heart of Templestowe Village and Tunstall Square, are more than just retail outlets.

They are part of the area’s fabric, supporting the community, encouraging sustainable living, cost-effective shopping and also stand as a symbol of ethical accountability. Our warehouse in Mitcham is the heart of this operation, making magic happen every day.

Doncare’s op shops are places where kind-hearted people volunteer as sales assistants, processing, pricing, and merchandising donated items for sale. Our stores thrive on the energy of approximately seventy volunteers and everyone brings their unique value to our team.

Our stores serve as vibrant community hubs, fostering connectivity through volunteerism. Our ultimate goal, however, is to generate ample revenue to support Doncare’s core services.
