This video from 2013 captures the extent of pilfering is endured by charity op shops. Charities are left with the rubbish: soiled and damaged clothing and goods no-one wants, certainly not items suitable for sale. It is the sole-destroying sight staff and volunteers at Op Shops see when they come to work of a Monday morning!
NACRO, with the agreement of Salvos Stores, has uploaded the video to YouTube and twittered the link to make the public aware of the importance of making their donation count by donating direct to op shops during business hours or by arranging for the charity to collect the goods. Watch the video on You Tube at this link.
