Join us during the month of May as we try to reach our goal of collecting 15,000 diapers for those in need in Lenawee County. Every year over 500 babies in Lenawee County are born into families living below the poverty level. These families struggle to provide their babies with a basic essential – diapers. There is very little help or public resources for this basic need. Programs such as W.I.C. and food stamps do not cover the cost of diapers.
