Griffith is gearing up for the second annual 'Share the Dignity' drive in August.
The Share the Dignity charity aims to bring sanitary items like tampons and pads to women in need across Australia. The charity was started by Rochelle Courtenay after learning that women were going without the needed items.
She said that the goal was for donations from communities to stay in those communities for the most part, but excess would be taken to other towns with less.
"Every pad and tampon that's donated is normally there to help a woman who lives locally ... if we don't get enough donations, we try to get them donated from more affluent areas and we'll move them on what we call our 'dignity train."
Share the Dignity only collects twice a year, in a bid to avoid what Mrs Courtenay calls 'volunteer burnout.'
"We can't leave them out because we don't want to ask our volunteers for that sort of commitment. People would get burned out seeing it all the time, we'd have volunteer burnout and giving burnout."
A spokeswoman for Share the Dignity said that while they were preparing for a campaign to recruit more volunteers, they had a mass influx of over 100 in one day and that had given them the numbers they needed.
Donations can be delivered throughout August to collection boxes that will be set up in Woolworths and Bunnings. The collection runs throughout the country and donations will be sent to women's groups and shelters for those in need.
