A Christmas campaign to help women in need of essential hygiene products begins in the Milton-Ulladulla next week.
Share The Dignity’s It’s in the Bag Christmas Appeal will run from November 16 to December 2 at two locations in Ulladulla.
Bunnings Warehouse on St Vincent Street and Sol Sisters in Bellbrook Arcade are the two collections points in Ulladulla.
The appeal calls on the public to donate a handbag, in good condition, that is no longer used and build a bag filled with essential and luxury items that will make “any woman feel loved”.
2018 is the fourth year the charity has run the Christmas campaign.
Donations can include basic essentials such as pads and tampons, deodorant, toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo and soap; and the little luxuries like lip balm and new socks, a magazine, anything that would make a woman or teenage girl feel special.
Bags can dropped off at the collection point at the entry to Bunnings, Ulladulla.
Share the Dignity volunteers will collect donated bags from collection points and distribute thought the holiday period to shelters and drop in clinics, ensuring that bags are available for women in time for Christmas.
