O’Brien calls for Gippsland South’s unused nappies
The Nationals Member for Gippsland South Danny O’Brien is participating in the Nappy Collective Giving Project and encouraging local parents with leftover unused nappies to donate them.
Mr O’Brien said the Nappy Collective Project aims to collect hundreds of thousands of leftover nappies from 390 official drop points in 44 towns and cities across Australia.
“To date over 1,449,693 nappies have been collected since the commencement of the project in 2013,” Mr O’Brien said.
“The Nappy Collective is a volunteer run, community based organisation established to collect leftover unused disposable nappies and redistribute them to organisations that support families in crisis or in need.
“The unused nappies collected through my office will be distributed to local organisations that support victims of domestic violence and young mothers in need,” he said.
“Although I am sure there could be many jokes directed at a politician offering such a service, I am proud to support this worthwhile community charity.”
Mr O’Brien’s office, located at 54B Cunninghame Street in Sale, is a registered collection point for unused nappy donations with donations being accepted from now until Friday 28th October (inclusive).
