Local automotive dealership Pacific Motor Group is helping supply repurposed pre-loved uniforms into clothes for children who have a need in our community with the recent announcement of their sponsorship of Uniforms 4 Kids.
The assistance comes in the form of a vehicle to transport the repurposed clothing and materials from partners of Uniforms 4 Kids such as the Australian Federal Police, Ambulance Victoria, Queensland Fire and Emergency Services, Australian Border Force, Queensland Police, Northern Territory Police, Fire and Emergency Services and Australia Zoo to the volunteer sewing network.
“This is such an amazing concept. Not only do they ensure that all of the old uniforms don’t end up as land fill, their amazing sewing network are able to transform them into incredible kids clothing.” commented Craig McPherson, Dealer Principal, Pacific Motor Group.
The pioneer and founder of Uniforms 4 Kids, Yvonne Pattinson OAM, intended only to clean out a cupboard crowded with material. To date, the charity has supplied over 6000 items of clothing to children in need.
“To have Pacific Motor Group as our vehicle sponsor is exciting for us and will allow so many more children who have a need receive our unique clothing, no matter where they are or who they are.” Mr Glenn Ferguson AM Chair, Uniforms 4 Kids
The community is invited to drop off unwanted sewing supplies including cotton, bright coloured materials, buttons, elastic and velcro to any one of the Pacific Motor Group locations at Currimundi, Maroochydore and Noosaville. The official hand over of the car to Mr Glenn Ferguson AM Chair for Uniforms 4 Kids will commence at 12pm Wednesday the 17th of April.
