Share the Dignity in August

Charity group Share the Dignity are asking the Clarence Valley community for their generous support as they launch their biannual Dignity Drive in August.

Aiming to make a real difference in the lives of vulnerable women and girls in a crisis situation, Dignity Drives establish collection points for members of the public to donate basic personal hygiene products and sanitary items which are then distributed to those in need.

This year, collection points will be set up at Woolworths Grafton and Newcastle Permanent in Grafton Shoppingworld, Chemist Warehouse, Clarence Regional Library in Grafton, and Southside Pharmacy, South Grafton.

Carol Starkey has been affiliated with Share the Dignity for several years and is encouraging the local community to give generously once again.

“What we are asking for is your help in regard to the basic sanitary requirements of women and girls in need,” she said.

“All we ask is while you’re picking up your own products, you could please include a donation to those in need.”

The Dignity Drive will run until September 1.
