St Marys Village is proud to partner with the Nappy Collective and their Mother’s Day drive to support mums in shelters and families in crisis or need.
This Mother’s Day drive will see the Nappy Collective hoping to collect its one millionth nappy and is testimony to the power of community and collective giving.
The initiative, now in its third year and second year partnering with St Marys Village, has collected over 734,600 nappies across 31 cities within Australia at 370 collection points.
St Marys Village and the Nappy Collective enables parents to redirect surplus disposable nappies away from land fill and provide them to communities who would benefit from this sustainable initiative instead.
Sandra Jacobs, Founder of the Nappy Collective, said, “We are delighted to be so close to collecting our one millionth nappy. It is a huge achievement that with the support of our amazing community, we’ve been able to help so many families in need or in crisis in such a short timeframe. a few nappies may not make a difference, but collectively, one million can.”
The Nappy Collective has an avid supporter and champion in Dannii Minogue, who has been actively spreading the word for this year’s drive.
“As a mum, I feel passionate about the Nappy Collective. It’s overwhelming to realise the positive impact it has on mothers in need, knowing the community cares about them.”
St Marys Village is once again proud to support the Nappy Collective in their Mother’s Day drive this year, being held from 6 May to 20 May 2016. Surplus disposable nappies can be dropped off at Centre Management in the corridor located next to Bakers Delight.
Lisa Curtin, Marketing Manager, St Marys Village said, “We’re so proud to be partnering with the Nappy Collective again this year to bring this initiative to our local community and to support its goal of achieving its one millionth nappy.
Our community threw its support behind this initiative last year to mums and families in need and we’re ready to lend our support again.”
