AKCO finally gets a new yard which we can now call “Home for AKCO”! With so many Donations In Kind (DIK) coming in and being offered to support AKCO’s projects and work in Kenya, it had become completely untenable for AKCO to continue operating from our home base at Carrum Downs.
It has also been very difficult and challenging for AKCO to get reliable places where containers can be landed and parked without any hassles. Generally it is very expensive renting container storage space in Melbourne and AKCO had very little option than either to fold up or look for own commercial yard for container storage. AKCO is now pleased to announce that we have secured this block of commercial/ industrial property in the seaport city of Hastings, Victoria.
Donations can still be delivered at our Carrum Downs home office or at Tootgarook collection point. Once the Hastings site is open and a container delivered then we will be in a position to accept donations directly delivered at the Hastings site.
The address is 160 Marine Parade, Hastings 3915, Vic.
