Banksmeadow based ethical clothing organisation, Thread Together, has been announced as one of the organisations to receive the CommBank Bushfire Recovery Grant.

Thread Together has received $50,000 to help fund a range of new clothing distribution centres in bushfire affected communities including Lake Conjola, Ulladulla, Batemans Bay, Moruya and Bega Valley.

Thread Together collects brand new clothing from the fashion industry that would otherwise be going to landfill, and distributes it to individuals, families and communities in need.

Thread Together has distributed more than 80,000 items of clothing into evacuation centres this year alone.
