Here is the information –

Chelsea Kiwanis Diaper Drive

It’s not fun to think about!
Have you ever tried to wash out a used disposable diaper to try to dry it and use it again?  Diapers–and cleaning products–are not allowable purchases via SNAP and WIC programs.  The same goes for all kinds of necessities for infants, so it puts many mothers between a rock and a hard place when it comes to trying to keep their babies clean, healthy, and comfortable.  It is especially daunting for young mothers who are trying to finish high school.

 

Drop-Off Event, Saturday, February 24th, 12 p.m.-2p.m.
That is why the Chelsea Kiwanis Club has partnered with Chelsea High School’s program for young and expecting student parents to help donate all kinds of items needed by babies and mothers:  diapers, bottles, pacifiers, blankets, etc.  On Saturday, February 24th, you can drop off diapers and other items at the parking lot at El Potro Mexican Grill, 170 Everett Avenue in Chelsea.  From noon until 2 p.m., Chelsea Kiwanis members will be at El Potro in the Market Basket shopping center to receive your generous donations.  Or, if you prefer, you can make a tax-deductible financial donation online via our Chelsea Kiwanis Children’s Charity Fund and we’ll do the shopping for you.  Either way, we thank you for your support of these young families.
