Open Support Gift Shop
Open Support’s Gift Shop plays an important role in supporting the organisation’s various services and operational areas through funds raised from the proceeds of customer purchases.
The Gift Shop also operates a range of additional customer-focussed activities – including Market Days, Raffles, Sales and Pop-up Shops – throughout the year to raise further funds to support the organisation’s continuing mission of addressing unmet need in the community.
Open Support’s Gift Shop stocks a unique range of products suitable for people of all ages – with many of them perfect for patients who may be staying in either of the St Vincent’s hospitals. The shop’s range includes: boutique gifts, cards, stationery, clothing and accessories (including nighties), hand-knitted children’s wear, mugs, tea towels, sweets and chocolates, as well as toys, newborn and baby gifts, scented soaps, hand creams, toiletries, prayer cards, confirmation and communion gifts and more.
For patients who may be staying in either hospital, Gift Shop volunteers will personally deliver purchases direct to patients’ beds, if requested. The shop also takes orders for stocked items by phone on (02) 8238 6438.
All purchases made via the Open Support Gift Shop assist us to continue to address unmet social need and assist the vulnerable in the community.
