Donate diapers for newborns in need

Local residents can help babies born to low-income families in Yolo County by supporting CommuniCare Health Centers’ third annual Diaper Drive on Valentine’s Day. Donated diapers will be given to low-income families who are served by the centers’ Perinatal Program.

Diapers will be collected from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 14, at the Davis Community Clinic, 2051 John Jones Road in West Davis.

“All of the moms in our Perinatal Program have low household incomes and very meager resources for even basic living necessities. One in every three moms struggles to provide their babies with the most basic essentials such as diapers,” said Jean Mackin, the Perinatal Program administrator at CommuniCare.

“Our annual Diaper Drive has been a wonderful way for the community to contribute in support of these families, either with diapers or with a cash donation for us to buy diapers.”

The goal of this year’s Diaper 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.

Packages of new diapers may be dropped off all day on Valentine’s Day or during regular clinic hours on any weekday thereafter.

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. For more information, contact Mackin at 530-204-5318 or jeanm@communicarehc.org.
