Our Charity Shops
The Kids Haven Charity Shops rely solely on the generosity of our donors who kindly donate their second hand goods to us.
All good received are first sorted to select what can be used for our children. Then the remainder of the goods are sorted for sale in our two Charity Shops at 38 Cranbourne Avenue and Tait House at 140 Woburn Ave, Benoni, 1500
The income generated from the shops goes towards funding care for our children – there is a monthly gap of R1,880 per child every month (we receive R3,792 per child from the Department of Social Development). This shows how vital the income from our shops is to Kids Haven.
In addition, many of our shoppers run their own micro businesses in their communities, on selling goods from Kids Haven, which helps them to support and care for their own families.
Pre Loved Books at Kids Haven has a superb and varied selection of books and bargains for sale. Please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org if you are looking for any particular book, special author, genre or type of book e.g. books suitable for readers age 10 – 12, and we’ll see if we have it available for you. Prices range from just R20 to R 40 for most books, including children’s books.
Kids Haven relies on the generous donations from the public to help support the children that are taken into their care. One of Kids Haven’s fund raising initiatives is the selling of the “Pre Loved Books” that have been donated by the public. After selecting books for children in our care, volunteers catalogue all the donated books and then distribute them to the different charity shops and markets where they are available for sale. All the proceeds from these sales go back to the running of the Kids Haven; looking after the children that are in Kids Haven’s care.
You can get involved by volunteering, donating money or second hand goods.
