The Nappy Collective will launch its 11th nappy drive today, May 4.
It’s a two-week campaign that calls on parents throughout Australia to donate unused, disposable nappies, providing tangible support to women and babies-in-crisis.
The collective’s mission is clear – by simply donating left-over, unused disposable nappies, Australians can help create a huge impact to families in desperate need.
Glenda Serpell of Sunshine Bendigo said the group is excited to be part of this national initiative.
“There is a real need in Bendigo for nappies and other baby goods for struggling families,” she said.
“This is who Sunshine Bendigo assists in our community on a weekly basis.”
May’s nappy drive will run until Friday, May 18 and calls for parents and families across the nation to become a part of the collective and aid families in their moments of crisis.
“If parents of every baby donated their leftover unused nappies this would create significant relief for families who are often faced with the choice between nappies and other necessities, such as food or healthcare needs for themselves,” Ms Serpell said.
Sunshine Bendigo is in Daly Street, Long Gully, behind Chemist Warehouse in the Uniting Church and is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 10am to 3pm.
