Ray of Hope will be conducting a Diapers & More Drive.
Needed are diapers, wipes, formula, bottles, hygiene products and gently used clothing for the Babies in Crisis Program.
The Diapers & More Drive will begin on Valentine’s Day (Friday, Feb. 14) and will go on through the first day of Spring (Friday, March 20).
“Our goal is to fill the Babies Corner in our Kids Cupboard,” said Ray of Hope Executive Director Laura Vieira-Saunders.
She’s encouraging businesses, churches, families and groups to step up and jump on board in collecting the said items.
Ray of Hope’s Babies in Crisis Program assists in making sure that the basic human needs of children are met.
“There’s nothing worse than seeing infants and toddlers living in situations such as homelessness,” Vieira-Saunders said.
Many here are referred to Ray of Hope via CPS, local shelters, and law enforcement agencies.
As for the Babies in Crisis: “The need for diapers is overwhelming and our diaper drives are the greatest blessing,” she said.
Vieira-Saunders added: “Babies who don’t have adequate diapers and hygiene resources are much more at risk at having rashes, urinary tract infections, kidney infections and more.”
Ray of Hope is located at 113 W. Yosemite Ave.
