Thread Together is coming to Ballarat - volunteers needed!

Cafs will soon be launching a fantastic new partnership with Thread Together to provide people in need across the Ballarat region with brand-new clothing and accessories.

 

Thread Together is a not-for-profit organisation driving social and environmental change by redistributing excess clothing stock through purpose-designed clothing hubs. Without Thread Together, many of these items would end up in landfill.

Through the Cafs’ Thread Together hub, those in need are given a referral to be able to shop (for free) for a new outfit.

 

Thread Together hubs are designed to enable customers to build trust and rapport within a dignified, safe and positive environment. Cafs is very proud to be partnering with Thread Together to be the first to launch this community service program in regional Victoria.
