Diaper Drive

Diapers for Medina - Update 8/2/2018

The totals are in. Drum roll, please. Three carloads, three adults and five children helped deliver and unpack three carloads packed to the brim with 8,618 diapers and pullups plus 122 packs of wipes.

Natalie Boothe started Diapers for Medina 4 years ago. Her kids were done with the diaper stage and she was by the pool reading a magazine when she read an article about a diaper drive in Michigan. A woman had found out about the need in an area close to her. She heard that families were even rinsing diapers to reuse them for their babies. Government assistance doesn't cover the cost for diapers. They had to make choices while shopping and with diapers being so expensive, they would buy food instead.

Natalie said "It was heart breaking to me, knowing full well I had thrown out clean diapers and had the luxury of changing my kids as they needed it, I never had to make a diaper stretch. So I started this, it has grown and I'm so thankful. I simply post in our church bulletin, reach out on Facebook, and connect with my parish community plus my friends and family. I'm so very thankful to live in Medina and have the support to help other families in need. Together we are making this happen."

Birthcare director Barb McCoy said "I wish I could personally thank all of those who have generously donated to your passionate cause. Your donation will go directly to our clients! They are the largest annual expense we have. God bless you!"
