Stepping Stone Baskets is a not for profit project, we do not get funding and as such we rely solely on donations.
What we don’t get in donations is funded out of our own pockets :)


We currently have drop zones for donations of goods in Kirwan, Rasmussen, Mount Low, Bushland Beach and West End.

The following organisations have also offered to act as drop off locations:

Queensland Youth Service

Just tell them the donation is for Stepping Stone Baskets and they will ensure it gets to us.

You can contact us via our Contact tab and we can arrange a drop off or pick up time. We also have an account set up for those who are unable to get to our local Townsville drop off points, but would like to help. You can get our Direct Deposit details by sending us a quick message here.
