SHARE THE DIGNITY #ITSINTHEBAG PROJECT
This year, the Statewide Operations Directorate participated in the Share the Dignity – It’s in the Bag project which aims to collect items for women in need for Christmas by providing them with a handbag containing toiletries and sanitary items.
QCS staff donated 103 handbags containing soap, tampons, pads, deodorants, toothpaste, toothbrushes, baby wipes, hand sanitiser, makeup, stationery, drink bottles, tissues, hair ties, combs, umbrellas, gift cards, shampoo, conditioner, hand cream, and more. $632.00 was also raised through raffles, from which we purchased a quantity of supermarket gift vouchers – these are being provided to DV support groups across Brisbane.
In 2016, the Statewide Operations Directorate will be participating in supporting Share the Dignity in their quarterly collections of sanitary items to support this worthwhile cause.
