Mountain Gate Community Opportunity Shop

Our shop is located at Shop 51, (next to Montania Cafe) Mountain Gate Shopping Centre, 1880 Ferntree Gully Road, Ferntree Gully VIC 3156,.

Mountain Gate Community Opportunity Shop is a social enterprise initiative of Foothills Community Care Inc.

Mountain Gate Community Opportunity Shop has been operating for over 40 years at this site, serving our local community through the sale of preloved items and channeling donations to many local organizations. After many years of operations, the reins have recently been handed over to Foothills Community Care to continue serving our community, while channeling much needed funds into our meals programs.

Mountain Gate Community Opportunity Shop provides low cost recycled and upcycled goods for sale at a good price providing pre-loved goods a second home. This is a win for the environment, a win for our customers and a win for our community.

Funds raised through our shop go directly to programs and services across Foothills Community Care including our Meals Programs, Monday Upwey Community Meal, Wednesday Ferntree Gully Community Meal, delivered Community Casseroles and our Women’s DV Peer Support Program.
