School Clothing Collections
Every year Stewart House benefits financially from collections of clothing in schools. The Smith Family generously provides bags and undertakes the collection and pays Stewart House for each kilogram received. About $25,000 is raised each year from this collection.
Stewart House has been working in partnership with The Smith Family for more than 50 years. Our recycling operation helps schools in NSW run clothing drives to collect good quality clothes and accessories for resale or export in Smith Family stores. School clothing drives are an important source of good quality new and near-new clothing, helping to keep our stock levels high.
