St George & Sutherland Shire Branch Of The Country Women's Association

Thursday, 17 September 2020

Speaker, I rise to acknowledge the St George and Sutherland Shire Branch of the Country Women's Association, who consistently donate generously to the Share the Dignity, Dignity Drives.

The March drive was hugely successful this year, in which my electorate office in Mortdale is a collection point for donations, and has been for the past few years.

Share the Dignity is a not for profit organisation which provides sanitary products for women and girls in crises, including homelessness, domestic violence shelters and other female shelters. The organisation collects thousands of sanitary products each year through its bi-annual Dignity Drives for women in need.

I want to thank the women of the St George and Sutherland Shire Branch of the Country Women's Association for their generous donation to this important cause, and in particular the Association's current President Ms Marilyn Mar, for her continued support. I am sure their contribution will be received generously by the women and girls most vulnerable in our community.
