Open Door Community Care runs the fabulous not-for-profit Op Shop and Laneway Nursery that operates out of 61-63 Main Street. Monbulk. Working in partnership with Open Door Community Church, ODCCARE has provided wonderful services to people living in the local hills area for more than 20 years.

We are dedicated to supporting locals through the Op Shop, the Food Pantry and Community support roles. Volunteering at the Op Shop and Laneway Nursery provides an opportunity to learn new skills, make new friends, and assist others. It’s a great way for people regardless of age, cultural background, or circumstances to get involved in our welcoming local community.

Our volunteers complete a wide range of tasks including sorting, pricing, stacking shelves and retail. The plant nursery has many good quality, affordable plants and the Nursery team do an incredible job keeping it neat, tidy and well-watered and they offer some excellent gardening advice. If you love plants join the Nursery Team today!

There are so many opportunities to volunteer, so we encourage you to consider how you might get involved and what time you can give in supporting others.
