To The Editor:

I am writing to thank the Wilton Family Y for letting me run a diaper collection in the lobby last week and also to express my gratitude to the many generous people who made donations. All diapers and wipes collected will be delivered to Community Action Center of Western Connecticut, Person to Person and the Domestic Violence Crisis Center.

Since Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) funds don’t cover diapers many parents are forced to reuse disposable diapers, which can result in many health issues for babies. In addition, most day care centers don’t allow the use of cloth diapers and this hinders job possibilities for parents.

This is an ongoing collection. If you can donate diapers and/or wipes or would like to help with future collection events please contact me at

Thank you.
