Baby Give Back is a local organisation that helps families in crisis, providing them with the essentials they need. Baby Give Back believe every child deserves a safe start in life and this is what their centres around. They provide donations (like nappies and wipes and gently used prams, cots, car seats, toys etc) via social service agencies. We love the way Baby Give Back is helping practically and restoring dignity to families who are doing it tough. Donating our nappies and wipes to families who need them most through Baby Give Back is a joy! Our warehouse in Chinderah is a drop off point for people to donate baby items to Baby Give Back. If you live local and have have any gently used baby products, please let us know and you can drop them off at:
1/16 Naru Street Chinderah 2487 and we will get them to Baby Give Back!
Fred's Place is a shelter for the homeless in Tweed connected to St Vincent de Paul Society. Their mission is make those without homes to feel welcome and safe. Homelessness has increased in our area greatly especially with the 2021 floods and it is a lack of housing a growing concern in the Northern Rivers. Fred’s place sees 80-125 people looking for help and serves up to 200 meals every day! They also provide shelter, laundry, and shower services. Fred’s Place provides a very needed avenue of help in our community!
We have been moved by the help that Fred’s Place gives our community’s most vulnerable. As a Luvme staff we provide home-cooked, hot meals to Fred’s place. It’s a special way that we can be involved in helping some of the most vulnerable people in our community.
There is a shelter that helps Indigenous women who are fleeing domestic violence. We will not share any names for privacy reasons but the help that is provided at this refuge is incredibly important. This local refuge is helping women establish lives outside of unhealthy relationships which means they and their children can live safely.
Our heart truly goes out to vulnerable women who are trying to escape very difficult situations. We can only imagine how scary and intimidating it must feel to start over from scratch. It is our honour to donate nappies and wipes to provide a bit of practical help ton these mums and children who are in need.

They provide showers, housing, fruit and veggie hampers, laundry services, drug and alcohol groups, training classes, and more!
We love seeing love in action and Agape is just that! We are grateful that we can partner with Agape by donating food and nappies.
Every year, Gardn Church puts together Christmas hampers to bless needy families in our local area. These hampers are filled with special Christmas treats and staple items so that no family has to go without in a season of celebration. These hampers are assembled, wrapped, and delivered all by hand and with a smile.
We love to be physically involved when possible! Many of our Luvme staff help pack and distribute these hampers. We bring our kids along for the journey because it’s special to show our children that helping others is important. We also donate nappies and wipes that are added to the hampers.
