CT-Moms Online, the only non-profit online parenting forum in Fairfield County, CT, has partnered with over a dozen parenting organizations around the area for their 7th annual Diaper Drive. This drive will continue throughout the month of May at all 17 area locations of Bright Horizons Early Education & Preschool, including the one in Wilton, at 7 Godfrey Pl.
Diapers are also being collected at Fairfield County locations of The Little Gym, Tumble Jungle and KidVille spanning the area from Stamford to Newtown with the help of over 20 town coordinators.
“Disposable Diapers are on the wish list of every charity mostly because they are so expensive and not covered by any government aid,” said Medha Thomas, the executive director of CT-Moms Online. “It’s a natural fit for us to work with these amazing businesses and organizational partners to help others in our area.”
Started in 2007 by collecting diapers from 80 members in their private homes, this drive has grown from a few boxes of diapers to over 20,000 diapers in the month filling two storage units. In 2014, it is the organization’s goal to collect at least 30,000 diapers for ten local charities including Operation Hope, The Bridgeport Rescue Mission, The Domestic Violence Crisis Center, The Tiny Miracles Foundation, Homes with Hope, and more.
All brands, sizes and types of diapers and diapering supplies are welcomed, including opened packages or loose diapers, wipes and toiletries. No clothing or other items are accepted. This diaper drive is open to any organization, company, place of worship or any group or individual that would like to help by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each location has a marked drop box and the CT-Moms Online website has links for the online registries at diapers.com and Amazon.
