Our Clothes Donation Pick Up Service

At Church 4 Life, our clothes donation pick-up process is designed to make giving back both convenient and impactful. It’s as easy as filling bags with the items you’re eager to donate. For those who wish to schedule a pick-up, we kindly ask for a minimum of five bags to ensure efficient logistics. To secure your pick-up, simply complete our straightforward booking form, providing us with your relevant details. Once received, we’ll be in touch to confirm the collection date that suits you best. On the designated day, all you need to do is place your filled bags near your mailbox, and our collection team will swing by between 8 am and 8 pm to pick them up. This seamless process ensures that your generous contributions reach those in need through the Church 4 Life initiative.

What Happens To The Donated Clothes?

Most items are sold at very affordable prices which not only helps those buying them, but also helps provide a livelihood for many people who need work locally and globally. 

Any clothing not needed locally, gets baled and shipped overseas. By up-cycling clothes, we are proud to say that we have kept thousands of kilograms out of landfill every year.

Church 4 Life is a registered Not For Profit charity through the ACNC. Any profits go directly back into charity expenses so we can continue to help local and global communities.

Some of the countries we have helped are Mozambique, Fiji, Bulgaria, India, Sierra Lione, Togo, Africa, The Middle East and more

We thank you sincerely for your continued support and donations!

The Purpose Behind Clothes Collection

In 1991, Pastor Richard Nash was burdened to send clothes to Mozambique. They were the poorest country in the world at the time and had been faced with war, drought and a hurricane.

After learning that people were dressing in tree bark because there was nothing else, he prayed, fasted and brainstormed with family, friends and church colleagues. Richard applied to the Australian High Commissioner for AU $20,000 for humanitarian aid to Zimbabwe and Mozambique. The funds were granted in January 1992 and we started collecting clothes.

Many Christian churches joined our mission and the clothes started flowing in filling a shipping container, and within months the clothes had been distributed to around 8,500 people. Two years later we repeated this process helping even more. 

After another visit to Fiji and seeing the incredible poverty of some people, we asked ‘What can be done to improve their quality of life and help them earn a living?’


The end result is Church for Life Clothing Collectors.
