During April, local businesses are collecting women’s hygiene products to donate to those in our community who are struggling to make ends meet.
Hayborough Pharmacy, TerryWhite Chemmart Victor Harbor, Australian Hearing Victor Harbor and Ali Donaldson Health Port Elliot are just some of the sites collecting for Share the Dignity.
Share the Dignity runs the Dignity Drive throughout April, when people are encouraged to purchase an extra pack of tampons or pads when they go shopping
Trish Peier, from Hayborough Pharmacy, said she wanted to help provide a low-cost, practical way of helping others in the community in need, and getting on board with Share the Dignity was a great way to do that.
“I read about the charity and thought that no one should be in that situation in a country like this,” she said.
There is a box at each of the businesses where people can donate sanitary items to be handed out to local women through local charities.
