Big Group Hug recently announced a new collaboration with SCR group, Australia’s largest and most innovative company for the recovery of Australia’s unwanted clothing.
The partnership aims to bring together the resources and expertise of both organisations to support families and children who are struggling in the community.
Through this collaboration, Big Group Hug and SCR group provide vital resources and services to families in need through Thread Collect a program that is being trialled in the City of Port Phillip.
The program is an on demand pick up service for clothing and household items. City of Port Phillip residents can request a collection of the preloved goods, and SCR group will then bring the goods we most need, directly to us at the Big Group Hug warehouse in Bundoora.
Each year, SCR group diverts over 30 million kilograms of clothing from landfill, those items finding new homes, giving them a second life in communities where they are needed most – making SCR group the perfect partner for Big Group Hug.
This program is a powerful example of what can be achieved when organizations work together towards a common goal. By combining resources and expertise, we can create a better future for vulnerable children and families in our community.
