Our entire staff would like to thank the citizens of Lenawee County and all who participated and donated to our fifth annual Lenawee Great Start May Diaper Drive. We received an outpouring of support Together we were able to collect over 12,575 diapers! In addition, we collected $1,246 in monetary donations, which will be used to purchase more diapers throughout the year. Your donations to the diaper drive have helped to fill a void by giving families with limited financial resources a way to help care for their babies most basic needs.
The success of this drive would not have been possible without the support of our collection sites and the generosity of all who donated at the following locations: The United Way of Lenawee/Monroe, LISD Porter Center, All First Federal Bank Locations in Lenawee County, All Old National Bank Locations in Lenawee County, Hopscotch Kids, and AJ Smith Recreation Center. We would also like to thank Adrian Lions Club, Lenawee Community Foundation, Tecumseh Kiwanis, TLC Community Credit Union, Meijer, Moms Club of Tecumseh, and Redemption Outreach Church for their generous donations. Also a huge Thank you to Evans Street Station, Aubree’s Pizzeria and Grill, and Chipotle for hosting our Dining for Diapers Events.
The vision of Lenawee Great Start is that all children in Lenawee County will start school healthy, safe and ready to succeed. Your donations to the diaper drive have helped to see that our youngest citizens are getting a great start by having their basic needs met. Thank you for your investment in our future and helping us grow great kids in Lenawee County!
