MEDIA RELEASE - CALL OUT TO LOCAL PARENTS FOR OCTOBER NAPPY COLLECTIVE - 5 OCTOBER 2018

Michelle Rowland, Federal Member for Greenway, is calling on local families with leftover unused nappies to donate them to The Nappy Collective initiative this October.

The Nappy Collective program runs Australia-wide with the aim of collecting hundreds of thousands of leftover disposable nappies. Donations are sorted and distributed to women’s shelters, programs for homeless mothers and young mothers in need.

Through the support of families across Australia, The Nappy Collective has collected almost 2.5 million nappies to date.

The next collection begins on Friday 12 October and will run through until Friday 26 October 2018. Residents are invited to drop in leftover unused nappies to Michelle Rowland’s office at 230 Prospect Highway, Seven Hills between 9am-5pm.

The services provided by The Nappy Collective are vital to supporting young Australian parents in need. Donations of any size will be welcomed, and will make a positive contribution to the lives of others.

“As a mum with a daughter still in nappies, I know parents can often be left with spare nappies when children grow out of them”, Ms Rowland said.

“I encourage residents to drop any left-over unused nappies to my office, which will be distributed to local parents who may be struggling with basic necessities and really need them,” Ms Rowland said.

For further information please contact Michelle Rowland’s office on 9671 4780.
