Local support for Nappy Collective
The Nationals Member for Lowan, Emma Kealy MP has been amazed by local community support for ‘The Nappy Collective’ project, with 544 nappies dropped off at her Horsham office over the past two months.
The project collects leftover unused disposable nappies and redistributes them to local organisations that support families in crisis or in need.
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.
“The 544 unused nappies collected through my office will be distributed locally to support victims of domestic violence and young mothers in need”, Ms Kealy said.
“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.
“Thank you to everyone who donated nappies for their fantastic support of this worthwhile community charity.
“I encourage all local residents to consider getting involved when the project runs again in May next year”, she said.
