Happy with nappy col­lec­tion

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Six hun­dred nap­pies are on their way to needy fam­i­lies across the re­gion as part of a com­mu­nity drive pro­moted by Mem­ber for Lowan Emma Kealy.

Ms Kealy has de­liv­ered the nap­pies to Chris­tian Emer­gency Food Cen­tre in Hor­sham.

Last year Ms Kealy nom­i­nated her elec­torate of­fice in Hor­sham as a drop point for The Nappy Col­lec­tive project, which in­volves col­lect­ing un­used dis­pos­able nap­pies for re­dis­tri­bu­tion to or­gan­i­sa­tions that sup­port fam­i­lies in need. “I have been amazed by the com­mu­nity sup­port for The Nappy Col­lec­tive project and thank ev­ery­one who took the time to drop nap­pies into my of­fice and those who pur­chased nap­pies specif­i­cally for do­na­tion,” she said.

“I am proud that the 600 un­used nap­pies col­lected through my of­fice will be dis­trib­uted lo­cally to sup­port vic­tims of do­mes­tic vi­o­lence and young moth­ers in need.”

The col­lec­tive runs twice a year, in May and Oc­to­ber, with 390 of­fi­cial drop points in 44 towns and cities across Aus­tralia.

Peo­ple have do­nated more than 1.7-mil­lion nap­pies since the project started in 2013.

“I en­cour­age res­i­dents to con­sider get­ting in­volved when the project runs again in May,” Ms Kealy said.
