Thread Together recruits Sunsuper volunteers
Published on 18 March 2020
Sunsuper's Sydney teams recently took some time out to help Thread Together provide new clothes to Australians doing it tough. Over two days the teams sorted around 15,000 items of clothing which provided much needed clothing to one evacuation centre on the south coast of NSW that offers clothing relief to approximately 30 people per day. The team also fulfilled a number of orders to local and interstate charities and social service agencies included The Port Church in Adelaide, The Wayside Chapel in Sydney, Rozelle Neighbour Centre and Justice Health and Forensic Mental Health Network.
“It was a wonderful experience to spend a Growth Day volunteering at Thread Together with my work colleagues, collating and putting together boxes of clothes for those in need as well as bushfire victims who have lost everything. It was great to know that we were playing a small part in reducing landfill as well as putting together wardrobes of clothes for communities from all walks of life, in need of a fresh start.” Danielle, Sunsuper
