Cobb Diaper Day, October 29, 2018

 

Tenth Annual Cobb Diaper Day taking place October 29, 2018

Please Support Cobb Diaper Day this October! 

The purpose of Cobb Diaper Day is to collect diapers for low-income families through the month of October. A community-wide collection will take place on October 29, 2018, at 5 p.m. at Glover Park on the Marietta Square. Cobb Diaper Day Committee volunteers will pick-up the collections or they can be brought to Glover Park. All donated diapers will be given to The Center for Family Resources, LiveSAFE Resources, MUST Ministries, Ser Familia and Sweetwater Mission to help ease some of the burden of the hundreds of families with infants and young children they serve.

Low-income families often have the daily stress of choosing between food and diapers. In these tough economic times, low-income families face these hard facts.

• Food stamps do not include hygiene products such as diapers.

• On average, the cost to purchase diapers is approximately $100/month.

• Day-Care centers require parents to provide their own diapers.

• Local agencies, such as those listed above, can only dispense diapers four times a year to their clients, due to the lack of resources.
