Interest in the county-wide Diaper Drives is growing and so is the need.
The third Diaper Drive will be held on Tuesday, November 15 from 10 am – noon in Clinton in the Victory Worship Center Parking Lot (at intersection of Highway 76 E and Springdale Drive).
After two Diaper Drives inventory is low and the community is encouraged to donate diapers. “It’s a privilege to serve those in need and help mothers and fathers with young families in our community,” said Penny Greer, coordinator of the Diaper Drive initiative for Westminster Presbyterian Church. “We are working on building up our supply and have specific needs for larger sizes – Size 3, 4, 5, 6 and pull-ups.”
To make it easier to contribute there are four Diaper Drop locations:
- Sadler Hughes Apothecary (102 Jacobs Hwy, Clinton) Monday-Friday 8:30-7:00 and Saturday, 8:30-4:00
- Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices C. Dan Joyner Realtors (202 W. Main Street, Clinton)
- Courthouse Coffee (124 E. Public Sq., Laurens) Monday-Friday 7:00 – 4:00 and Saturday, 8:00 – 2:00
- Family Promise (205 Church St., Laurens) Monday-Thursday 8:30am-5pm and 8:30-12 on Friday
Carolina Pregnancy Center (CPC) from Spartanburg will be onsite with their mobile unit providing free pregnancy testing or ultrasounds as needed.
Distribution at the Diaper Drive will be limited to one pack of diapers and wipes per child with a max of two children per household. Parents will be required to show personal identification and provide the child’s name and verification of custody/birth. Appropriate identification includes parent or guardian photo id (a copy will be made) and could be one of the following to show verification of custody: birth certificate, WIC, or Medicaid card for child, foster care/custody paperwork, daycare/school ID.
Drop off a pack of diapers at one of the four Diaper Drop locations and help us make a difference for those in our community.
