SUNSHINE Bendigo remains in need of a new home, as demand for its services continues to grow.
The volunteer-run initiative has been providing struggling families with donated baby goods and nursery equipment for more than three years.
Founder Glenda Serpell said Sunshine Bendigo probably needed a space about double the size of its existing premises at Daly Street, Long Gully.
The charitable organisation had been close to securing a new home since it appealed for help to find a place in February, but was unable to leverage the support needed to seal the deal.
Ms Serpell said the growth in Sunshine Bendigo's services had been particularly noticeable in the past 12 months.
The organisation re-homed more than 1112 goods last year, worth a total of about $220,000. They went to about 391 families and 275 case workers from more than 18 agencies.
Sunshine Bendigo recorded a 110 per cent increase in the number of families assisted in the past year. It also provided services to double the number of case workers.
Ms Serpell said donations like the $5000 presented by the Central Victorian chapter of the American Motorcycle Club at the weekend enabled Sunshine Bendigo to keep providing services to the community.
"Without the community's support, we'd cease to function," she said.
The charitable organisation has yet to determine how the motorcycle club's donation will be spent.
If a new premises were found, the money could be used to help fit out the space.
The treasurer of the Central Victorian American Motorcycle Club chapter, Al Martin, said the club raised the funds for Sunshine Bendigo with a raffle and the January dice run.
He thanked the Cambrian Hotel for its assistance with the raffle.
More than 100 Harley-Davidson riders participated in the dice run.
The chapter consists of about 30 members.
