Kealy signs up for Nappy Collection
The Nationals Member for Lowan, Emma Kealy MP has thrown her support behind ‘The Nappy Collective’ project by signing her office up as a local collection point.
The project collects leftover unused disposable nappies and redistributes them to organisations that support families in crisis or in need.
There are 390 official drop points in 44 towns and cities across Australia, with over 1,759,850 nappies having been donated since the project commenced in 2013.
“This initiative runs twice a year in May and October and I am very excited to have signed up my office at 114 Firebrace Street, Horsham as a collection point for the October nappy collection”, Ms Kealy said.
“The unused nappies collected through my office will be distributed locally to support victims of domestic violence and young mothers in need.
“I am proud to support this worthwhile community charity and encourage everyone in our local area to consider getting involved.
“You don’t have to have a supply of unused nappies on hand to make a contribution – monetary donations are welcome or some people have actually purchased new nappies to support this worthy cause”, she said.
Unused nappy donations are being accepted from now until Friday, 27 October 2017.
