O'Brien wants your unused nappies
The Nationals Member for Gippsland South, Danny O’Brien, is participating in the Nappy Collective Giving Project and encouraging locals with leftover unused disposable nappies to donate them.
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.
“It’s not just parents dropping off unused nappies that their children grew out of. Last year I had people dropping off unopened packets that they went out of their way to purchase just for this cause.”
“To date over 1,759,851 nappies have been collected since the commencement of the project in 2013.
“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.
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, 19 May 2017.
