Who are the 3081 Angels?

We are a volunteer run, not-for-profit organisation which collects quality, preloved baby and children's goods to give to families in need in West Heidelberg and the surrounding suburbs in Banyule.

3081 Angels is a partnership between Banyule Community Health (auspicing agency) and Rosanna Baptist Church. Goods are donated by other families in the local area.

Our vision is that no child in West Heidelberg and surrounding areas will be without basic material needs.

We understand the pressures of social and financial hardship and that there are a range of reasons why parents sometimes need help to access the goods their child needs. We know we all need some extra support sometimes and that there are people in the community that want to help others who are having a hard time.

We are extremely grateful to the following organisations for their generous grants and donations of cash and in kind:

  • Banyule City Council
  • Baptcare

  • Bunnings Northland
