Local residents can continue to help babies born to low-income families in Yolo County by supporting CommuniCare Health Centers’ third annual Diaper Drive. Donated diapers will be given to low-income families who are served by the centers’ Perinatal Program.
Diapers were collected all day Thursday at the Davis Community Clinic, 2051 John Jones Road in West Davis. Packages of new diapers may be dropped off during regular clinic hours on any weekday.
The goal of the drive is to receive enough donations of infant-size diapers (size newborn to size 3) to provide one month of diapers for each newborn in the program. An average of 45 babies are delivered every month, and each newborn uses about 200 diapers in a month.
Monetary donations are also accepted with gratitude. Checks may be made payable to “CommuniCare — Diaper Drive” and sent to CommuniCare Health Centers, P.O. Box 1260, Davis CA 95617.
