Pictures and stats from this year’s diaper drive:
Second Annual Diaper Drive
Saturday, May 13, 2017
7 am to 7 pm
933 Liberty Avenue
2017: Katie writes:
Sue saved the day with her van, and herself being there for 8 hours, and Beth came back a second time when Sue had to leave. My dad was able to stay for the last couple hours, which was fortunate because David came all the way from WV (and he had to leave to go to work in Ohio!) to donate $100 and some formula, baby snacks and Pedialyte. We left at 6:15, and I’m really sorry if anyone came by after that, I should have stayed till 7! Beth said people can bring donations down between 9 and 11 on Tuesday during her shift.
We collected 2,291 diapers, 2,876 wipes, a swing, 3 bouncy seats, a play mat, 2 baby carriers, several swaddlers and sleep sacks, a set of crib sheets, a car seat cover, a bag of maternity clothes, a few bags of baby clothes, a diaper bag, a high chair, a car seat (not in the picture because I have to check and make sure used is ok) an audio monitor, a few containers of formula and $536.
Last year we collected 4,949 diapers, 4,862 wipes, $693, a stroller, a high chair, a hobby horse, a swing, two diaper bags, a couple bags of maternity clothes and a ton of baby clothes, a few containers of formula, several bottles of baby soap, powder, etc. for the clients of CURO and Women’s Choice Network. Monetary donations can also be made. Katie
Our own Katie, Shift Manager and Sidewalk Advocate, hosted this second annual event!
Sidewalk Advocates were on their shifts and supported Katie (also a Sidewalk Advocate) with a cause we could all get behind!!!
Rick, Thursday 5-7 shift manager, and his wife did a “drive by drop off”.
Diane D., with a new sign showing help for women, stood for several hours on the opposite side of the street, supporting the drive and directing attention to practical help.
Beth, long time Sidewalk Advocate and President of PCUC, came down in the morning and then came back in the afternoon to stay with Katie so she wouldn’t have to stand alone. Judy, (SA) Sue D. (shift manager, SA and blog writer for 40 Days for Life) and Marian (SA) also supported Katie during the drive.
Tim B and Bill H manned their spots, as usual, early on Saturday. Bill H came back later to check to see if Katie needed someone to stand with her. Judy and Hank, shift managers (and Sue D’s parents) for 40 Days for Life also stopped to donate.
A special thank you to Katie’s mom and dad for donating their time, talent and treasure. And to Nick, Katie’s son, who gracefully shares his mommy!!
Happy Mother’s Day!
