Supporting women in need this Christmas

EASTERN Shore residents will have the chance to help women in need this Christmas by participating in Share the Dignity’s “It’s in the Bay” campaign.

All Bunnings stores nationally will act as drop-off points for the Christmas collection drive, which provides a simple way to donate essential items to women who are doing it tough, experiencing homelessness, domestic violence or poverty.

Bunnings Warehouse Mornington will be accepting drop-offs until Saturday 2 December.

Useful items can include essential sanitary staples and personal care products, as well as something a bit more special such as a Christmas card or a note of support.

Share the Dignity founder Rochelle Courtenay said she was excited for the campaign, which kicked off on 18 November.

“I’m looking forward to seeing local communities come together to bring dignity and support to the more than 85,000 women across the country who are in need,” she said.
