If you have other skills or interests you would like to share, we would love to hear from you.
Your donation will help us go the extra mile in delivering kind, compassionate, and reliable in-home, respite and social support services within our community.
All donations to RangeCare are used to support clients experiencing financial hardship and to support the delivery of RangeCare’s full range of services (e.g. purchasing essential equipment and nursing aids).
Donations from people and organisations within our community enable us to deliver services beyond the restrictions of government funding. All donations to RangeCare are gratefully accepted and donations over $2 are fully tax deductible.
RangeCare’s Op Shop - Where everything old is new again
Opening an op shop was an important step for our community-based, not-for-profit organisation which has experienced significant changes in government funding since 2015.
The funds raised through op shop sales are directed back to providing quality care and support to people along the Blackall Range and surrounding areas so that they can continue to live independently in their homes longer.
Donations of items can be taken directly to the shop at The Old School House at 17 Obi Obi Road, Mapleton.
RangeCare relies on the generosity of the local community to donate quality, pre-loved clothing, shoes, bric-a-brac, household items, small furniture items, and children’s toys.

Would you like to volunteer in our op shop? We are always on the look out for people who are interested in working on the shop floor, preparing donations for display (washing, ironing, etc.), and helping sort through the donations.

What Our Clients Say...
It is more than three years since we joined Rangecare and I want to thank everyone who does something for us. The people who answer the phone and those who deliver meals and take us to Doctors etc. You treat us with dignity, with a happy smile on your faces. We appreciate everything you do for us. The Rangecare Family make life so much easier especially with us not having family close by. We look forward to hearing the doorbell and seeing you. You are here for us on good days and the bad days. We should tell you more often and not take you for granted.
So a big THANK YOU to everyone from us both.
