Get behind The Nappy Collective for a good cause

The Nationals Member for Lowan, Emma Kealy MP is once again getting behind The Nappy Collective by nominating her office in Firebrace Street, Horsham as a drop off point.

For the past two years Ms Kealy has nominated her office as a drop off point for unused disposable nappies that have then been distributed to local organisations that support families in crisis or in need.

“The local generosity and support for The Nappy Collective Project has been amazing and it’s wonderful to see donations come in for such a great cause,” Ms Kealy said.

“I am proud that over 2,000 unused nappies have been collected through my office over the past two years and distributed locally by the Christian Emergency Food Centre to support victims of domestic violence and young families in need.

“Our region is filled with people who are kind, thoughtful and generous.

“Local school children have run fundraisers at their schools to raise money to buy new nappies to donate to the collective which is a fabulous way to show support for those in need in our community.

“It is heart-warming to know the next generation will continue to care for the community and support one another when it is needed most.

The Nappy Collective initiative runs twice a year and will be running again from the 6 - 20 September.

A national target of 200,000 nappies has been set.

“I encourage people to check in the back of their cupboards to find any unused nappies and to drop them into my office,” Ms Kealy said.

“This is a fantastic project and I encourage all local residents to get involved.”
