During the month of April, ‘Share the Dignity’ is once again holding their drive for sanitary items, to help women within our community who are doing it tough.
The items can be placed in the pink bins which have been placed at several retail outlets around the valley: Coles Yamba, Stanford’s Pharmacy and Pharmasave Maclean, Pulse Fitness Maclean, Ace Variety Maclean and in Grafton; Australia Hearing, Chemist Warehouse, Blooms Chemist and Friendlies Pharmacy.
All of the items collected are distributed to local charities that help women affected by domestic violence as well as homeless women.
Share the Dignity’s next drive will be in August and the annual ‘It’s in the Bag’, will be held in November.
There is still a need for local volunteers to assist with these drives; especially in the Grafton, Yamba and Iluka areas.
If you can help out at all with this great cause, contact Liz Robinson 0403 157 790 or the Share the Dignity website.
