"Collection-Diapers & Wipes-New Baby Items"
by David Kourtz-Coordinator
Monday, November 4, 7:00 PM
Greater Lynn through its membership will again conduct a â€˜Wipes and Diapesâ€™ Collection for the Teen Mother Program of the JOI Center in Lynn, on Monday, November 4th prior to the evenings presentation. Your support helps multiple families in need, and adds to GLPAâ€™s certification as a non-profit organization helping the community.
In 2018 club members were incredibly generous with approximately 3000 diapers and 10,000 wipes donated. Additional donations of infant & toddler clothing were included. Items that we encourage to be donated are the same as last year.
1. Diapers-any brand- for ages 2 months to 4 years- size 2-5
3. Baby personal toiletries e.g. shampoo, diaper rash ointment, etc.
4. New infant or child clothes -ages 2 months - 4 years
5. Packaged or bottled baby food
Many if not all of the moms and infants that benefit from your donations are still attending high school, while mothering a new child and attending classes on 'how to mother'. Additionally, many are also working to earn income to support their new family.
Your donations through Greater Lynn are GREATLY appreciated as the family budgets are small and your donations are a significant help to these new families.
With the holidays coming, I canâ€™t think of a better way to help folks who can use some support.
Thanks for the club for sponsoring and especially for the membership's personal generosity.
Any questions please feel free to email me.
