Anglicare South West will be able to help more people in need, thanks to a generous donation from the Terang Community Op Shop.
Julie Pomeroy approached the community-run charity after hearing at Terang's Anglican Church that a lot of people were struggling financially.
"We saw a need and we thought if we can get some funds to help, it would be a worthy cause," she said.
Terang Community Op Shop project manager Andrea Balcombe said the charity did all it could to give back to the community. She said more than $900,000 had been contributed to the community since the op shop opened in 2009.
Anglicare Victoria South West community development co-ordinator Louise Serra said she was extremely grateful for the generous donation.
"It goes directly to our emergency relief centre, which is based in Warrnambool and supports people across the district," Ms Serra said.
She encouraged people who needed support to contact Anglicare.
