The 2015, 2-1-1 Cares: Diaper Drive was a great success! Over 4,652 diapers were donated and our celebrations party at Roller World was really rockin with over 80 people attending!
Diapers and funds were donated to make it possible to provide diapers to Lighthouse Mission as they meet the needs of families who have fallen on hard times. A baby with a soggy diaper or a chapped bottom is not a happy baby and makes stressed parents even more anxious and frustrated. So diapers can be a BIG RELIEF to families in need. The gift of Diapers can also help prevent childabuse and improve parent-baby bonding since mothers who cannot change their babies as often as they feel neccessary lose confidence in themselves: feeling guilty and inadequate.
Thank you to each person who donated diaper and to Roller World, Citizens Bank and Xcel Energy for making the Celebration possible!
