1000 dresses for the heroes of the Kimberley .... our grandmothers.

1000 dresses for the heroes of the Kimberley .... our grandmothers.
Thank you to everyone who has donated, our latest tally is 5.845 dresses with many parcels to open and more on their way! The ladies have been so happy choosing out their favourite dresses and other items with many of them saying it has made their day! 😊 Thank you everyone for bringing the joy!

These women work so hard for our families and communities in this remote region, often with nothing left for themselves. Our goal is to reach 1000 dresses in the next 12 months to gift away. We appreciate all quality donations that help us reach this goal. We ask that everyone post directly to us, there are no drop off points in other cities or towns.

What Clothes do we need?

Size 14+ is ideal but we have women of all shapes and sizes so all donations will find a loving owner. We are entering the hot season here so light clothes are best, but all winter woolens will be held onto for our cold season.

Can I send other items?

Yes, we work to support all members of our community. Men's clothes, kids clothes, shoes, households goods, toys are all welcome.


Where are the clothes going?

Marninwarntikura Women's Resource Centre is in Fitzroy Crossing in the remote Kimberley Region of WA. Our 1000 dresses will be gifted to the grandmothers in our community. Other items or extra items will go to any family in need through our social work and shelter. Lastly, we have a little op-shop to provide affordable clothing to the whole community.

How else can I help?
