Diapering Durango’s Tiny Heinies
It's that time of year again! Things start to get busy with holidays right around the corner and it's easy to forget about those who might need our help! Unfortunately there are still many families in Durango who continue to struggle to make ends meet. One vulnerable segment of our population can be specifically impacted by this situation, our sweet babies. And the story is still the same, when money is tight; buying diapers can be a real challenge. Babies can be left in diapers too long, causing diaper rash or infection, which can cause them to be cranky and irritable which can then be a cause for abuse. Disposable diapers are even sometimes reused…Yuck!
So what can you do to help? Through December 9th please bring diapers, formula and/or baby wipes to any of the following locations:
First National Bank of Durango main lobby
First National Bank- Bodo Location 10AM-3:00PM
First National Bank in Bayfield,
Boxes in the entries of City Market North and South, Albertsons beginning the 17th
The diapers, formula and baby wipes will be delivered to the following agencies for their clients who request diapers: Manna Soup Kitchen, Advocacy for La Plata, Durango Food Bank, Bayfield Food Bank, The Family Center, VOA – Safe House and Durango Community Shelter
It costs approximately $75/month for diapers for a baby. Formula can be $100 and baby wipes are additional. So let's all take a few minutes to help these familes out!! Last year there were over 9500 diapers, 6000 wipes and several cases of formula collected. Let’s beat that this year!
