With your gifts in tow, visit your nearest Kmart store and take a tag from the Wishing Tree. Using one end of the tag, indicate the age group and gender of who you think might like to receive your gift. All you need to do then is place the gift under the Wishing Tree. Don't forget to take the other half of the tag to hang on your tree at home.

Alternatively, you can leave your gift/s at the Express Drop Off point located at the front of our stores. The Salvation Army or Mission Australia representatives will then collect the gifts from Kmart stores and oversee their distribution to those in need.

Gift do not need to be purchased from Kmart; they can be purchased from any retailer, or can even be hand-made. We are, unable to accept used or second-hand goods.
