In honor of Mother’s Day, The Care Connection Lactation and Wellness Center is hosting a Diaper Drive to help WNY moms.

According to the National Diaper Bank Network, 1 in every 3 American mothers report experiencing diaper needs. Diapers are considered a hygiene item, therefore they are not covered through government-assisted programs. There are families that simply cannot afford an adequate amount of diapers, which can result in babies who are in diapers longer than they should be. This can lead to diaper rash, infections and other health problems.

All disposable diapers from newborn-size 6 are welcome, including open packages. All donations will benefit Harvest House of South Buffalo. Diapers can be dropped off on Saturday, May 13th from 9am-2pm at The Care Connection Lactation and Wellness Center at 3991 Harlem Rd Amherst, NY 14226.

Donate and receive a free swag bag, enter to win prizes and enjoy food provided by Wheatberry Bake Shop!
