There are many businesses in the community trying to help those to have a better Christmas than they normally would.

Bunnings Victor Harbor is certainly playing its role with its 'Share the Dignity' initiative which has been running since November 22 and finishes on December 7.

There is a box at the entrance of the store where the community can fill a handbag no longer required with items that would make a woman feel special. Manager Danny Leach said the box was full of bags with sanitary products and that the bags go to people in need.

"Essentials such as shampoo, toothpaste, soap, deodorant, pads or tampons, hair brushes, toilet paper and tissues are all needed items that can go in an old handbag or back pack," Danny said.

It is not just the 'Share the Dignity' campaign where Bunnings supports the community, as nationally they raised $600,000 for drought and bush fire victims with the Victor Harbor store raising $1900.

"Bunnings is part of the community and we all live here too. Environmental sustainability and education is something we are passionate about and helping others. We support not-for-profit groups and consider requests," Danny said.

Bunnings has assisted Victor Harbor R-7, Goolwa Primary, Normanville Resource Centre, Victor Harbor Coastcare, Community Garden at Toc H and the Encounter Centre in 2019.
