MILDURA’S first Share the Dignity charity drive has given support to vulnerable and homeless Aboriginal women in the Mallee.

Share the Dignity collects donated sanitary items and personal care products to supply to community organisations and domestic violence shelters, with the Mildura campaign collecting more than 450 items.

Four young Sunraysia women, including Jade Buhecker and Zoey Andrews, worked on the Mildura campaign and distributed donations to local organisations during the past week.
