Thread Together delivers new, good quality clothing and shoes to people in our community who are doing it tough. And as uni students, many of you are doing it tough, so the Thread Together van is visiting Flinders!

One of the best parts is Thread Together have new clothes, rescued from potential landfill, provided at no cost. Yes, new rescued clothes for FREE!

The Thread Together van will be visiting Flinders Uni four times this year, to ensure clothing for all seasons are covered (literally). Last year we had the van visit once, and the stories and smiles on people’s faces when they had their Thread Together van experience…. well, let’s just say my eyes didn’t stay dry that day.

If you like your brand names you can appreciate that more than 8 million dollars worth of clothes have been donated from brands such as Seafolly, Camilla & Marc, Specialty Fashion Group, The Iconic, General Pants, Bendon, and many more. All of this is a big thanks to Anglicare SA, who support Thread Together in South Australia.

 

To access the van at Flinders Uni, you will need to collect an appointment card from a staff members within Health, Counselling & Disability Service, OASIS, Yunggorendi or FUSA. These staff members provide a variety of valuable services for students, and understand when you might need support like this.

If you have any further questions, feel free to see me at the OASIS, or email me abarnes@flinders.edu.au.

 

 

*If you’re doing it tough, be sure to come to the Flinders Community Market and keep an eye out for free winter coats and food hampers around Christmas time.
