Mothers & More Kicks Off Diaper Drive in Oakland County
Chapter 135 Oakland County Lakes Area in Partnership with the Society of St. Vincent de Paul and the CARE House of Oakland County will provide diapers to moms in need
Imagine on top of all the stresses of motherhood, the added stress of not being able to diaper your child. Imagine having to take a bus, with kids in tow, to shop for an enormous box of diapers, or only being able to buy them in an expensive, convenience store. Imagine not being able to work, because you cannot provide the childcare center with enough diapers. This is the reality for too many mothers.
To help diminish this struggle for low-income moms, Mothers & More, a national membership organization providing community and programming for moms, will host a diaper drive, “Make a Mother’s Day” April 1st through May 20, 2015.
Diaper Drive to be held at Kroger stores in Commerce and White Lake
Saturday April 11 from 9 to 1 Commerce store located at 2905 Union Lake Road
Saturday April 18 from 9 to 1 White Lake store located at 10805 Highland Road
Donation Boxes are also available at the following locations:
All diapers will be donated to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul pantries and the CARE House of Oakland County.
Last year the 135 Oakland County chapter of Mothers & More collected more than 4800 diapers, contributing to the more than 50,000 diapers collected by chapters nationwide. This year, the goal is 60,000 diapers.
“There is no denying the need for diapers is great, with 1 in 3 U.S. families struggling to afford diapers and no help from government assistance programs to help pay for diapers,” said Michelle, Diaper Drive Coordinator for Chapter 135 Oakland County Lakes Area.
“Mothers & More members find great value in advocating to improve mothers’ lives, so this diaper drives allows us to do just that, to work together as a community to help better the lives of low-income moms, as well as call attention to a real problem affecting too many mothers,” Michelle added.
