Kealy - Nappies distributed locally to those in need
The Nationals Member for Lowan, Emma Kealy MP has delivered over 600 nappies to the Christian Emergency Food Centre for local distribution to those in need.
Last year Emma Kealy MP nominated her electorate office as a drop point for ‘The Nappy Collective’ project to collect leftover unused disposable nappies for redistribution to local organisations that support families in crisis or in need.
“I have been amazed by the local community support for ‘The Nappy Collective’ project and I thank everyone who took the time to drop nappies into my office and those who purchased nappies specifically for donation,” Ms Kealy said.
“I am proud that the 600 unused nappies collected through my office will be distributed locally to support victims of domestic violence and young mothers in need”, she said.
The initiative runs twice a year in May and October, with 390 official drop points in 44 towns and cities across Australia.
Over 1,760,000 nappies have been donated since the project commenced in 2013.
“Thank you again to everyone who donated nappies for their fantastic support of this worthwhile community charity,” Ms Kealy said.
“I encourage all local residents to consider getting involved when the project runs again in May”, she said.
