March 13, 2020 – These are challenging times-with almost hourly advisories regarding best practices to keep safe and healthy. We want only good outcomes for our incredible volunteers & the children & families we serve. To that end, we are suspending our regular Wrap Sessions at our warehouse location until further notice. Because of our great volunteers, we have a sufficient inventory to meet our partner agencies’ needs through the month. As the picture proves, the steadfast teams that pack & deliver over 16,000 diapers to the Food Bank every month are not stopping until told otherwise. While we may need to adapt some procedures & change some plans- one thing will NOT change—We are doubling down on our mission to ensure that children in our communities have enough diapers to stay clean, dry and healthy!
Our families will certainly face greater challenges in the days ahead.
