HPP Needs Large Size Diapers - PLEASE HELP!
Homeless Prenatal Program has an immediate need for diapers, especially in sizes 4, 5 and 6, to provide to their clients. To help them meet this need, GGMG's Community Support Drives Program is hosting a Diapers and Wipes Drive starting today and running through April 21 to benefit Homeless Prenatal Program.
For the 3,500 families who visit HPP each month, diapers are often a necessary expense they cannot afford. The organization distributes almost 8,000 diapers a month - mostly in sizes 3, 4, 5 and 6 and they are out of sizes 4 and above. They accept open packages of diapers and wipes. In the words of Sharon Bechtol, HPP's Volunteer & Donations Coordinator, "many times clients have to leave suddenly where they are staying and can't always take things with them. So when they come for help and need diapers it is very important that we can help them with this. Babies can't wait for a few days for things to settle down to get their diapers changed!"
It's not unheard of for moms to leave their babies in wet or soiled diapers simply because they cannot afford to use another one. Please help HPP prevent that from happening by donating today!
Please consider joining us in support of HPP in one of two ways: 1. Purchasing diapers and wipes online - either through HPP's Amazon wish list or from any website you prefer; or 2. Dropping off the items at the HPP or one of their donation centers.
