Day

In 2021 we made over 300 draw string bags which we filled with Christmas gifts and gave to Pantry 5000 to distribute to those who require their services. 

 

Everyone deserve to have something special at Christmas and thanks to the generosity of the members for all the items donated we were able to put a smile on someones face.

If you would like to donate items for our bags please contact the office.

Recycling

Mordialloc Neighbourhood House is ensuring we are playing a role in our community recycling. 

 

We are a drop point for egg cartons which are passed onto

Pantry 5000 for them to reuse. 

MNH is also a drop point for bread tags.

 

We are looking at more recycling options in the future.

Read to me 123

Melinda Shelley, a volunteer in our local community, understands that babies and children need books to have a real chance in life.

 

Knowing that you first need to have books to be able to read to children, but that books are a luxury when you are struggling to put food on the table. 

123Read2Me currently provides children in low socioeconomic communities with FREE quality children's books through recycled books or new ones

purchased with cash donations. The total value of books donated to date exceeds $3,000,000.00 (replacement value). 

 

They promote reading to children and support the work of over 50

organisations, most o operating in the Frankston, Mornington Peninsula, Dandenong, Casey, Kingston and Bayside Local Government Areas of Victoria. 

 

Mordialloc Neighbourhood House understand the importance of reading to

children and children having access to books and became a supporter and

drop point for this organisation in 2019.

Dignity Drive

Menstruating isn't  a choice  but those experiencing period poverty often have to choose between purchasing period products or other essential items just to get by.  We’d rather they didn’t have to choose.

We’re on a mission to ensure all who menstruate have access to period products when they need them. That’s why twice a year in March and August, we call on Australians to donate period products through our Dignity Drive, to be distributed to our registered charities across the country. We accept all products in original packaging, including pads, tampons, maternity pads, period undies, menstrual cups, incontinence products.

Since Share the Dignity was founded in 2015, we have donated over 3 million period products to those who menstruate, through our Dignity Drives and #ItsInTheBag campaign - thanks to your generosity.

If you would like to help all items can be dropped off to our office.
