Working Together

PROGRAMS FOR PURPOSE

Designed To Make A Difference

Increase team productivity, boost cooperation and help you attract and retain quality staff by making a positive impact on your community and the environment. While our programs offer feel-good experiences for employees and employers, benefits go deeper than that.

 

On behalf of CommBank and our Credit Cards team, I’d like to say a massive thank you for having our team spend the day with Thread Together yesterday. We’ve already received some really positive feedback about the day and the team’s experiences. Thank you for your assistance accommodating each of our requests along the way, for providing an excellent lunch and for organising some really inspiring speakers. Laura Manescu

A FRESH PERSPECTIVE ON WORKING TOGETHER

Creating a better community

Create a fresh perspective on productive  interaction by working together to create a better community. Break down social barriers and bridge divisions by coming together as an interdepartmental team. Increase employee engagement and with that their intention to stay with you and to strive  above and beyond what is expected from them. A highly engaged team is more likely to wield extra effort and have lower turnover rates, which can be linked to improved output, sales, and profitability.

A day of team building at Thread Together in Sydney consist of morning or afternoon tea with an introduction into the Thread Together model.  This is followed by a clothes sorting activity which helps us get the clothes to people in need. We offer complimentary use of our facilities for off-site optional conferencing for bookings over 20 people, flexible times and  optional lunch. Transport to and from Thread Together from one Sydney Metro location can be arranged for a variety of group sizes.

"The Smallest Act Of Kindness

… is worth more than the grandest intention”

– Oscar Wilde

School programs

CHARITY HAS THE POWER TO HEAL

Acts of charity, no matter how small, are of great benefit to both the giver and the receiver with ongoing positive change being effected that extend far beyond the initial act of charity. Givers experience a rush of endorphins, get a boost in self-confidence and self-worth. Helping others has the power to heal and works wonders for children’s self-esteem.

EVERYONE CAN VOLUNTEER

You may not be getting good grades or excelling at sports, but everyone can volunteer and make a difference for someone else.

During their time at Thread Together children learn about a world beyond their experience and that their actions matter. They learn about what Thread Together does and the people they can help by giving a couple hours of their time. They sort clothes and get creative. They will learn about kindness, charity, empathy and friendship. The children learn, even if it’s by means of just a small act of kindness that they can make change. What it means to be a good person, how to make a difference and how they can impact their own community.

"Be the change

…that you wish to see in the world”

― Mahatma Gandhi

Future Leaders

Designed to help grow the next generation of empathetic leaders, Thread Together invites schools to bring their students and our future leaders to the Thread Together warehouse and community centre for a leadership workshop and clothes sorting activity.

UNDERSTANDING PRIVILEDGE

Being involved in charitable work helps children to understand their own privilege, and the responsibility it brings. It demonstrates that showing compassion for others makes them a better and stronger leader that people will want to support. The result is a powerful boost in self-esteem to realise they have the power to be a leader and make a difference in someone’s life.
