Southern Community Welfare has opened Southern Grace - a second hand pop-up clothing store to assist disadvantaged members of the community.

The not-for-profit organisation provides community support for those in need in the Sutherland Shire.

Southern Grace has been designed as a social enterprise to raise ongoing funds for the work of Southern Community Welfare.

The idea to open a pop-up store followed the success of the organisation’s annual monster garage sale which also allows the community to purchase second hand items.

The pop-up store is open three days a week, Tuesday to Thursday from 9.30am to 3.30pm, operating out of the Gymea Baptist Church property.

The store sells a range of stock including clothing for men, women and children, jewellery, shoes, toys and books, to name a few.

“Not only is this a great way for us to raise money, we also see opportunities in developing additional community programs through this enterprise,” Southern Community Welfare CEO, Vicki Sherry said.

“Whilst our services are there to support anyone who wants to see change, many of our clients and services work alongside some of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged members of our community and this is a great way to support those with the greatest need.”

The store is located on the corner of Hotham Road and Tea Gardens Avenue.
