Women in need of toiletries
LOCALS are encouraged to donate a backpack or handbag filled with sanitary products and toiletries to help a woman in need this Christmas.
Share the Dignity’s It’s in the Bag appeal aims to gift bags of items such as sanitary products, shampoo and conditioner, toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap and deodorant to women and teenagers experiencing homelessness or domestic violence.
Founder Rochelle Courtenay said donating a bag full of hygienic essentials was a “small but extremely impactful gesture” that locals could take part in.
Bags can be dropped off at any Bunnings store, including Belmont and East Victoria Park, until December 2.
A Bunnings spokesman said they hoped to collect 120,000 through their network of stores.
