Help us this National Volunteer Week by helping Thread Together: an initiative that rescues brand new clothes from landfill and distributes them to people in need all around WA
As a society we recognise that people need food and shelter. We often don’t realise that people also need basic clothing. Many Australians don’t have access to a warm winter jumper, comfortable, waterproof shoes or even a clean pair of underwear.
Thread Together is the only organisation in Australia whose main mission and focus is to source new and excess clothing from fashion retailers and redistribute items to those in our communities that need it most. In five years Thread Together have distributed over $8 million worth of new clothing to people in our community who are vulnerable and in need.
