CLC is once again collecting diapers for Cobb Diaper Day, set for September 30th.
Since 2009, The Barbara Hickey Cobb Children's Fund has devoted its energy to passionately advocating for low-income families and children in need in our community. Low-income families often have the daily stress of choosing between food and diapers. Prolonged wearing of a wet diaper causes diaper rash and a crying baby leads to more stress at home. Food stamps do not include diapers and the cost to purchase diapers is approximately $100 per month.
Local agencies, such as the Center for Family Resources, liveSAFE Resources, MUST Ministries, Ser Familia, Simple Needs Georgia, and Sweetwater Mission can only dispense diapers four times a year to their clients, due to the lack of resources.
This year, CLC is collecting larger size diapers—sizes 3, 4 and 5. Please bring your diaper donations to the church narthex starting Sunday, September 1st and ending Sunday, September 29th. Our goal for 2019 is 10,000 diapers. We are one of the largest donators in the county for Cobb Diaper Day. Thank you for your generosity for this needy cause!
