As one of the few charitable organisations solely operating in Western Australia that accepts clothing donations in their bins, they’ve become quite the household name throughout the state.
It all started back in 1958 when one Reverend Ralph Sutton was approached by a young woman with a hearing impairment seeking employment. It struck a chord, and he decided to ask his parish to donate items of clothing which were then sold for a small price. And so, Good Sammy was born.
Over the decades, they’ve helped thousands of West Australians find meaningful employment, as well as supporting a large number of worthy causes including the NDIS, school based programs, and retail.
