O'Brien calls for unused nappy donations
The Nationals Member for Gippsland South, Danny O’Brien, is participating in the Nappy Collective Giving Project and encouraging locals to donate unused disposable nappies.
Mr O’Brien said the Nappy Collective Project aims to collect hundreds of thousands of leftover nappies from 340 official drop points in 50 towns and cities across Australia.
“This initiative runs twice a year in May and October and I am always astounded at the generosity of our locals.
“Earlier this year I was able to handover more than 650 unused disposable nappies to St Vinnies due to the generosity of our local residents.
“I had people dropping off unopened packets that they went out of their way to purchase just for this cause, but donations of open packs are just as welcome.”
“As we approach the holiday period a lot of people will be doing it tough, so if you have some unused disposable nappies laying around that your little one grew out of before you had a chance to use them, this is your opportunity to make a difference to someone in need.”
To date over 2 million nappies have been collected since the commencement of the project in 2013.
Mr O’Brien said the unused nappies collected through his office will be distributed to local organisations that support victims of domestic violence and young mothers in need.
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, 27 October 2017.
