The Men’s Shed will accept donations in kind for the use by the members, or if the shed has no current need for the items donated, these maybe made available to other men’s sheds who have an unfulfilled need for such an item.
Alternatively if there is no need identified within the various men’s sheds, the items donated maybe put up for sale direct to any interested members of the Monash Men’s Shed for their own home use, on through EBAY or perhaps even through the Lions opportunity shop in Mt Waverley.

Our Shed has received a large donation of obsolete stock including a broad array of paints and varnishes.
Maurie and Greg went down and collected the goods the other week following this generous offer by John Sinclair, Tait’s manager.
The many cans of paint etc. will make a significant impact to the work of the Shed and possibly to individual members (for small home repairs) and others. They will also be:
- Used by the Shed for current and new Community projects
- Donated to other Sheds that we support
- Donated to other community groups in our support network
The Shed and its members are thrilled with the generosity that has been shown to us by Tait Home Timber and Hardware. Contact Maurie Turner next time you’re in the Shed for further details and “sellout” prices.
