CCJ promotes 4th annual 'diaper drive'

To keep a baby healthy, it takes as many as 90 diapers per week, at a cost of up to $2,000 per year. That is a substantial burden for a family living in poverty. Unfortunately, there are many local families living in poverty; In Yavapai County, 26 percent of families with children under five are living in poverty.

This spring, the Coalition for Compassion and Justice (CCJ), with the support of First Things First, invites the community to help local babies and toddlers by supporting the 4th annual Yavapai Diaper Drive. The drive runs from May 12 (Mothers' Day) - June 16 (Fathers' Day), and diapers collected during that time benefit low- income families county-wide.

Caring citizens can help by donating disposable and new cloth diapers, and wipes, providing funding, or offering their business or house of worship to serve as a collection site.

Monetary donations can be made online at yavapaiccj.org or mailed to P.O. Box 1882, Prescott, AZ 86302. Please write the check out to CCJ and make sure "Diaper Drive" is noted with the contribution. Donated diapers may also be dropped off at CCJ Open Door, 505 W. Gurley St., Prescott, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.

Additional collection bins will be located across Yavapai County. Prescott drop-off locations include: Heights Church, Prescott United Methodist Church, Temple B'rith Shalom, Trinity Presbyterian, American Lutheran, CCJ Thrift Shop, Arizona Serve, Artisan Cleaners, Prescott Library, and Yavapai College Prescott Campus. Collection bins are also located at Stepping Stones Thrift Shop in Prescott Valley, Prescott Valley Library, Yavapai College's Prescott Valley and Verde Valley Campuses, Black Canyon City Library, Ash Fork Library, Cottonwood Library, and Faith Lutheran Church in Cottonwood.

For further information or to get involved with the Yavapai County Diaper Drive, call CCJ Open Door at 776-0353 or contact Diane Iverson at directoropendoor@gmail.com.
