You Can Help!
We need diapers. Lots of them. One child goes through nearly 3,000 diapers a year. In Linn County alone, there are over 2,000 children ages 5 and under living in poverty.
You can donate new and open packages of diapers (any size or brand) at the following locations:
- All Corridor area Hy-Vee Food Stores & Drugstores (October 4 – 24, 2021)

Every dollar donated will keep one baby or toddler clean and dry for one day!
