Access to a sufficient supply of diapers is essential for the health of infants and toddlers, but too many families do not have the resources to adequately provide for this basic need. One in three families report experiencing diaper need. Thanks to a new partnership between St. Croix Health (SCH) and United Way St. Croix Valley, SCRMC will be hosting a diaper drive at all of their locations. They are asking community members to donate diapers sizes newborn, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and baby wipes. Due to safety guidelines, all donations of diapers and baby wipes must be in their unopened, original packaging and they ask participants to be aware of supplies and not deplete a store of any inventory.
Diapers can be dropped off at any SCH clinic location: Frederic, Lindstrom, St. Croix Falls Unity, and Webster. There will be a bin located in each lobby with signage. The diaper drive will take place July 11-15. Diapers and baby wipes collected will be distributed to families through nonprofits located in Polk and Burnett Counties for regional impact. Your support helps families gain financial flexibility to focus income on housing and other essential items.
