WBUCC will be collecting diapers for our “Make A Mother’s Day” Diaper Drive in honor of mother’s day. We’ll accept disposable and cloth diapers, pull-ups, as well as wipes. We take all sizes in new or opened packages. We’re especially looking for newborn and sizes 4 & 5. (Some people may have leftover diapers their children have outgrown–we take those too as long as they are in new condition.) ROC City Bottoms is a nonprofit community group in Rochester, NY. They work with local organizations (such as Cameron Ministries) & other community agencies to provide diapers for little bottoms in need.
Diapers are not a luxury, and many moms face the choice of buying diapers or buying food. Let’s honor our mothers in need with the gift of diapers.
There will be collection bins at church starting Sunday April 15th through Mother’s Day, and you can drop off donations whenever the church is open. If you can’t get to church but want to donate, or want to be sure the church is open, please contact me (330-2471 texting is best). You can find out more about ROC City Bottoms and the diaper need in Rochester at their website http://www.roccitybottoms.org/
