NAPPIES are a demand that can never quite be met in the region, but generous people in the North East have donated in the thousands to boost supply.

The Nappy Collective runs in May and October each year and the latest one brought 3652 units through the doors at Albury Wodonga Regional FoodShare.

Four volunteers spent the afternoon separating the sizes and boxing them up on Friday.

FoodShare's Sophie Richards said all the boxes would be gone within three months.

“It makes a huge difference in the community, there is such a high level of need for them,” she said.

“People can start saving their nappies for the next collection in October.”
