Nicky Alsemgeest just wants to do some good in the community.

She sees Wagga’s generous spirit and has been devising ways to assist people give back to the community.

Through the help of Incubate, an initiative to assist set up a business or social enterprise, she created Gathered Wagga on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to connect with residents.

“I’m working under the premise that people want to give but they don’t know how to,” she said.

For her first project, Ms Alsemgeest is collecting socks and underwear to donate to clients at Micah House.

Items are being collected at Working Spaces HQ, Rock Solid Gear, Blood Donor Centre, Bedrock Landscaping, Orthodontics Wagga and Riverina Office National until October 2.

Gathered Wagga will choose new charities and organisations to assist around the city every few weeks.
