In addition to diapers, we will be collecting wipes and baby care products (wash, lotion, shampoo) for the Pregnancy Aid Center in Raritan and the Hillsborough Food Pantry.
Please consider this:
- 1 in 3 mothers struggle to afford diapers for their child
- SNAP (Food Stamps) and WIC programs do NOT cover the cost of diapers.
- Babies go throu 5-12 diapers/day depending on their age.
- A healthy change of diapers can cost $100 a month.
Each year in the Spring or Fall the Parish conducts a Baby Shower event. At this time parishioners are encouraged to donate diapers, wipes, toiletries, layette items as well as very gently-used clothing, strollers, exersaucers and booster seats.
All items are brought to the local pregnancy aid center and distributed to local mothers in need of assistance.
Each year on Super Bowl Sunday weekend this ministry solicits diapers and associated baby products (wipes, bottles, etc.) for distribution to needy mothers. All donations are given to local pregnancy aid centers and the Hillsborough Food Pantry for ultimate distribution.
