“Thank you!!! This means a lot and will be a huge help. Being a single mom and COVID have really taken their toll.”

“My husband lost his job and I am a stay-at-home mom with three children under age 5. With the help of the diaper program, I know that we have a place we can go to get help. Not only do the diapers help, but [also] the formula and clothes. While my family tries to get back on our feet, we don’t have to worry about how we will pay for diapers. “
