Hundreds of nappies donated

GIPPSLAND South MLA Danny O’Brien, has handed over more than 870 nappies of various sizes and brands to Uniting Gippsland.

Mr O’Brien collected the nappies at his office as a drop-off point for the Nappy Collective Giving Project, which distributes unused nappies to families in need. He said he was overwhelmed by the response of donors.

The next formal collection drive will take place in October, but Mr O’Brien said he was happy for people to continue to drop off donations of unused nappies to his Sale office at any time.

“One of the great things about this project is the nappies are distributed locally — it’s a simple way we can support families in need.

“Many of us donate clothes and toys as our children grow to charities; it’s great that we can also pass on the half open pack of nappies as well.”
