THEY say one person's trash is another person's treasure, and volunteers from the Upper Room Crisis Care Centre are about to test the theory.
The organisation will hold a Trash and Treasure event this Saturday to raise funds and attract new members.
Based in Regents Park, the centre provides free food parcels and other items such as beds, fridges and washing machines to help struggling families in the community.
Volunteer coordinator Cathy Bunn said funds raised from events like the Trash and Treasure helped the centre continue its vital service.
"The centre is not-for-profit and receives no government funding so we rely on events like this to allow us to keep operating," she said.
A bargain hunters paradise, the fundraiser will feature a variety of good conditioned items on sale including clothes, furniture, plants, books, DVDs and much more.
The event will take place at 10 Estramina Rd, Regents Park on Saturday, December 8, from 7am to 2pm.
Ms Bunn said she also encouraged any people who might like to assist with the Trash and Treasure or other future events, phone the centre on 3800 0037.
