Restore Dignity to Local Homeless Women

Media Releases

State Member for Wallsend, Ms Sonia Hornery MP, is calling on local residents and businesses in the Wallsend electorate to donate sanitary and hygiene products at her office in support of the Share the Dignity campaign.

Share The Dignity is a not-for-profit registered charity providing homeless and at-risk women nationally with sanitary products to allow them a sense of dignity at a time when they need it the most. Share The Dignity believes that access to sanitary items is a right, not a privilege.

The Dignity Drive will be run during the month of August with the aim of making a difference for homeless or at-risk women.

Ms Hornery is hosting a collection point in her electorate office, and is encouraging as many donations as possible to support local women in a time of great need.

Donations of sanitary and hygiene products can be made at Ms Hornery’s office at 67 Nelson Street, Wallsend, during business hours Monday to Friday.

Quotes attributable to Member for Wallsend, Sonia Hornery

“Share the Dignity is a fantastic national charity that also does great work supporting local women in need right across the Hunter.”

“Share the Dignity is a great example of how one small idea can make a big difference in the community.”

“I’m encouraging as many donations as possible. Donating can be as simple as buying an extra packet of pads or tampons the next time you’re at the supermarket and dropping them off.”

“It’s something that most people probably don’t even stop to think about, but homeless women are often left without these basic and essential products while living on the streets.”
