A Launceston business has become a collection point for nappies that will be donated to women in need of assistance.
El Conveyancing has opened its doors to anyone willing to drop off single or unopened nappies, which will then be donated to the Launceston Women’s Shelter or Karinya Young Women’s Service.
The gesture is part of a national initiative called The Nappy Collective.
The Nappy Collective is a movement that collects nappies all over Australia, and redistributes them to more than 150 organisations.
The Launceston initiative is a partnership between El Conveyancing and Storybook Communications.
El Conveyancing director Erin Sims said the cause resonated with her all-female staff of 10. “[We chose this cause because] women are fleeing situations with absolutely nothing,” Mrs Sims said. To donate to The Nappy Collective, take nappies to El Conveyancing at 14/29 Cameron Street, Launceston between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday between October 14 and 28.
