O’Brien hands over nappies to local charity
The Nationals Member for Gippsland South, Danny O’Brien, was delighted to be able to handover more than 670 nappies of various sizes and brands to St Vincent De Paul’s Sale Conference this week.
Mr O’Brien collected the nappies at his office as a drop-off point for the Nappy Collective Giving Project, which distributes unused nappies to families in need.
“I am overwhelmed at the generosity shown by locals, particularly during the uncertain times many of our households are facing.
“Many people dropped off unopened packets that they had purchased for the sole purpose of donating to this cause, which shows what a wonderfully generous community we live in."
St Vinnies will pass the nappies on to local families in need.
Mr O’Brien said he will continue to be a participant in the Nappy Collective Giving Project and that the next formal collection drive will take place in October, however he is happy for people to continue to drop off donations of unused nappies to his Sale office at any time.
“Kids grow so quickly and it’s really common for people to have half a pack of unused nappies lying around that they never used before their child outgrew them. I’m encouraging people to drop that pack into my office the next time they go past and make a big difference to someone in need.”
The Nationals Member for Gippsland South, Danny O’Brien, hands over the nappies to St Vincent De Paul’s Sale conference secretary, Maree Ross.
