Member for Morwell Russell Northe is again participating in the Nappy Collective Giving Project and encouraging local parents with leftover unused nappies to donate them.
Mr Northe said the Nappy Collective Project aims to collect hundreds of thousands of leftover nappies from 400 official drop points in 39 towns and cities across Australia.
“To date over 734,000 nappies have been collected since the commencement of the project in 2013,” Mr Northe 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 will be distributed to women’s shelters, programs for homeless mothers, organisations that support victims of domestic violence and young mothers in need.”
Mr Northe said the Nappy Collective was launched in 2013 after a group of mother’s had some leftover nappies that their children had grown out of, unsure of what to do with them they decided to donate them to families less fortunate.
Mr Northe’s office is a registered collection point for unused nappy donations with donations being accepted from Friday 6 May until Friday 20th May (inclusive).
