Here at Manningham Uniting Church & Community Centre, in partnering with the The Nappy Collective we’re providing an opportunity to donate any un-used nappies that are no longer are required for your households.
Families tend to have leftover, spare nappies at home for many reasons:
- A baby or toddler may have grown out of a size of nappy part way through a packet or box of nappies
- Families may have tried or accidentally purchased a new brand which didn’t suit their child
- Families might have left spare nappies in a different bag, in the car or at the grandparents’ house only to find that once again their child had grown out of them
- Families may have made the switch to cloth nappies and have spare disposable nappies.
Some families pass these leftover nappies on to a friend, keep them for their next child or sadly even throw them away. The Nappy Collective’s aim to collect these nappies that could end up in landfill and divert them to families in need.
They happily accept unused nappies from open packaging. The nappies however must be clean. Labeling the size is extremely helpful too as it makes life easier for our volunteers who sort our nappies ready for distribution to our Community Partners.
The donations we collect will go directly to one of our Community Partners in our area, where they will be distributed to local families in need. Therefore, the nappy donations we collect from our community, will have a direct impact in our community.
