Watchhouse Wardrobe
“Watchhouse Wardrobe”
another Environmental initiative 😊
Can you help?
We are looking for good quality clothing donations for our next Environmental project: “Watchhouse Wardrobe”. 
Start checking out your un-wanted clothes (both men’s & women’s) to be donated to the watchhouses that need clothes for the perpetrators to wear into court etc.
Often times clothing worn during an offence are seized by police for investigative / evidentiary purposes leaving them with no clothing. Things like track suit pants (with cords removed) shirts, jumpers etc are always in demand. 
Anything deemed not suitable for that cause can always be donated to CHATS as they now have a “shop” in Port Adelaide where the people in need of the area can get free clothing.
Please contact Alison Howlett or any others on the Environment/Vocation Committee.
The Port Adelaide watchhouse has been approached as a possible recipient to augment what clothing they may already hold for anyone in need when they come through the system.
Clothing specifics:
  • No slogans or images that may be deemed offensive
  • Good quality & clean clothing
  • Any cords/ties etc. are to be removed (e.g. on tracksuit pants)
  • Polos for men are a good option
Checking with PA Police wrt:
  • Both male & female clothing?
  • Both tops & bottoms?
  • Underwear & socks? (this would be new not recycled!)
  • Shoes?
  • Children’s sizes as well?
  • Sorted/packaged requirements
  • Frequency of donations?
This project could be on-going as sure the need is continuous.  Also, we could engage other clubs in SA to do something similar as it is not a costly exercise – we just need to plant the seed within our district etc.
