how it all came about 

It was the start of winter and Founder Kylie Riseley had been busy collecting, sorting and cleaning clothes, baby goods and other items of need for the local community centre to distribute to the disadvantaged members of her area. 


Unfortunately, due to lack of funding and space, the community centre were unable to continue giving out the goods and Kylie was left with a lounge room full of donations. She set about trying to find an alternate organisation that promised to take the items and give them directly to those in need. Although there seemed to be plenty of charities willing to take the goods, Kylie didn't want all her hard work to go to waste  and everyone's kind donations ending up on a thrift shop shelf.  Kylie says "I wanted to see the goods to go people that truly needed them, I wanted to feel like I had actually made a difference to somebody, no matter how small".  


So she began to research and it wasn't long before Kylie found a group in Sydney that collected clothes, sorted them, then walked the streets at night handing the items to those that had very little or nothing at all. It was such a great idea and exactly the type of organisation she wanted to support.  Sadly they only catered the Sydney region, but where there is a need there is opportunity.... And so with a few quick emails and the creation of a facebook page, Clothes that Care was born.


We now have supporters all over the country and our volunteers are multiplying by the day. We thank each and everyone of you for taking the time to visit our page
