Over 5000 diapers were generously donated through First Parish’s November Diaper Drive! Members collected diapers and wipes to benefit the families served by Housing Families in Malden at the Charles Street Stop & Shop all day on Saturday, November 21st. Shoppers were asked to purchase diapers and wipes or drop off donations.
Did you know that the leading cause of mental health problems for new moms is not being able to afford enough diapers for their child? Can you imagine having to let your baby stay in a dirty diaper longer than she should because the money has run out and rent is due? The dozens of people who donated diapers and wipes to First Parish’s diaper drive helped local babies, mothers and fathers avoid this painful situation.
Thanks to all who donated and helped out!
