The Saint Barbara Summer Camp Program hosted a Diaper Drive for DiaperBank “change from the bottom up!” from Tuesday June 27, 2017 thru Tuesday July 11, 2017.
We thank everyone who brought in a donation of diapers with you to the Church, in support of our Saint Barbara Summer Camp Charitable Giving Camp Reach-Out Project 2017 which supported the local Diaper Bank in North Haven CT. By extending this project to the entire Church Community we were able to generously donate 3,955 diaper items.
We thank you all for your generous support!
Founded in 2004, The Diaper Bank centralizes the fund raising and distribution of free diapers to poor families in Connecticut through existing service providers, including local food pantries, soup kitchens, daycare centers, social service agencies and shelters. Recognizing that an inadequate supply of diapers puts families with young children at an increased risk for health and parenting complications, The Diaper Bank serves as a model for like-minded organizations across the country.
The Diaper Bank has to date distributed more than 20 million free diapers to poor and low-income families through its extensive Diaper Distribution Network (DDN) of more than 60 agencies in New Haven, Hartford, Fairfield, Middlesex and Windham Counties.
“Be watchful, stand firm in your faith, be courageous, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love.”
1 Corinthians 16:13,14
