Tassie Mums’ bundles of joy

Local charity Tassie Mums is providing an essential service to Tasmanian families in need.

Working in partnership with more than 70 social service organisations, Tassie Mums collects donations of new and pre-loved baby and children’s clothing and items, which are then re- homed by social service organisations to families across the state.

Liberal MP Elise Archer recently visited the Tassie Mum’s operational facilities in Sandy Bay, meeting with Tassie Mums founder and CEO Clair Harris and operations manager Madeleine Glover.

“The volume of donations that pass through this organisation and the number of Tasmanians who benefit is enormous,” Ms Archer said.

Clothing bundles are made up for girls and boys from premature birth up to 12 years of age. A newborn bundle can contain more than 70 items of clothing and at least two books and two toys, donations permitting. Other items that are also rehomed include nappies, playmats, bassinets, cot linen and toiletry packs for new mothers.

“I urge anyone who can to support this wonderful organisation with clothing donations or a cash donation to consider donating,” Ms Archer said.

“Cash donations can be utilised by some very savvy volunteers to purchase items that provide Tasmanian babies and children in need with everyday essentials.”
