Gippsland South The Nationals Sale Charity Donations Nappies uniting care vulnerable hand sanitiser

Nappies where they’re needed

The Nationals Member for Gippsland South, Danny O’Brien, was delighted to donate hand sanitiser and pass on much needed nappies of various sizes and brands to Uniting Care this week.

Mr O’Brien said Uniting Care would distribute the nappies and hand sanitiser to where they were needed most within the local community.

“I am proud to be a collection point for the Nappy Collective Giving Project, which allows me to collect unused nappies to be distributed to families in need,” Mr O’Brien said.

“One of the great things about this project is the nappies are distributed locally, it’s a simple way we can support local families in need.

“As usual I have been overwhelmed by the generosity shown by locals, many of whom drop off unopened packets of nappies that they have purchased for the sole purpose of donating to this cause.

“In light of current circumstances, it was only fitting that I also donate 100 bottles of hand sanitiser to help lighten the burden for our most vulnerable residents.

“As we all know too well, many Gippslanders are doing it really tough lately with the drought, bushfires and now COVID-19 having a large impact on our community, so it’s great to be able to help in any way that we can.”

The Nappy Collective is happy to accept donations of any unused disposable nappy regardless of brand or size and can be dropped off at Mr O’Brien’s office during business hours year-round. Open or brand-new packets are equally appreciated.
