Wimmera Health Care Group will host a collection and fundraising morning tea for Share the Dignity’s Christmas drive this year.
Share the Dignity help women and girls living in poverty by providing pads and tampons, personal hygiene products and everyday luxuries to homeless women, women at risk or women experiencing domestic violence.
Wimmera Health Care Group’s Amelia Crafter said her and fellow team members Sophie Connor and Rae Gardy will host a morning tea on Tuesday, November 26 where team members can either make a donation or exchange a handbag and donated toiletries in return for sweet treats.
“As women, we know how important hygiene products are to us and the thought that so many women and girls aren’t in a position to have access to them made us want to help,” Ms Crafter said.
“Wimmera Health Care Group is also a work place with a large portion of female team members so we thought it was a charity that fit well with us as an organisation.”
The Christmas drive is called #ItsInTheBag and focuses on creating three types of bags to donate, a teen bag, mum bag and woman’s bag. All bags donated during the Wimmera Health Care Group fundraiser and drive will be passed on to Bunnings who partner with Share the Dignity to hand them out to those in need.
Wimmera Health Care Group is encouraging other businesses and individuals to get involved by either having their own event or dropping off donations to Bunnings.
