MILBRIDGE, ME — Women for Healthy Rural Living, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization focused on advancing and promoting the health and well-being of the woman, her family, and her community, is undertaking a Virtual Diaper Drive. Maine Seacoast Mission is helping WHRL distribute their diapers to area parents in need of them.
The Consequences of Diaper Need
Babies who remain too long in a soiled diaper are exposed to potential health risks.
Parents trying to keep their babies in diapers may be making multiple trips to the store, each time increasing their risk for Covid-19 exposure. And if they cannot afford to purchase in bulk, the risk increases with every outing.
Buying diapers should not be a matter of life and death.
Participating in a virtual diaper drive allows us to purchase diapers in bulk, so our dollars go further than yours would at the grocery store!
Our diapers will be distributed through the Maine Seacoast Mission Food Pantry in Cherryfield.
