The power of one person giving one diaper or one dollar is tremendous
Phoenix, AZ (Vocus) November 24, 2010
With the holiday season quickly approaching, many citizens are wondering how to donate to those in need.
From now until January 30, 2011, Homeward Bound, Arizona’s largest transitional housing provider serving homeless, and domestic violence families throughout Maricopa County, is holding their 12th Annual Baby Diaper Drive in order to collect diapers and baby wipes for families in need.
“The power of one person giving one diaper or one dollar is tremendous,” said Eileen Rogers, founder of the drive and president of Allegra Marketing & Print. “The diaper is a tangible connection to the families we are trying to help. It starts with one person and the desire to lend a hand.”
In this new economy the need to reach the goal is more critical than ever. Homeward Bound has set a goal of collecting 100,000 diapers and $75,000 in emergency baby funds to help keep babies and toddlers happy, healthy and smiling in 2011. Aside from collecting diapers and baby wipes Homeward Bound also uses the monetary donations to supply families with emergency items such as strollers, hearing aids, glasses and other items that focus on a specific families’ needs.
