DioHouse raises $690 for Bayview Mission’s annual Diaper Drive

Posted on September 23, 2014

Last Thursday, September 18, DioHouse staffers Denise Obando, Shari Gonzales, and Francesca Pera made a trip to Costco to purchase diapers for Bayview Mission. DioHouse staff — with 100% participation — raised a total $690. That’s a lot of diapers, but not nearly the 40,000 Bayview Mission hopes to collect as they near the halfway point in a two-month diocesan-sponsored Diaper Drive. Bayview Mission would welcome your congregation or ministry support.

Bayview Mission has found that many parents are often forced to stretch the use of diapers beyond their recommended use. Offering donated diapers to families in need helps to ensure healthier and happier babies and young children. Sizes 4 and 5 are especially needed, but all sizes will be gratefully distributed.

To help spread the message, there is a downloadable flyer available here and a bulletin insert available here. For more information, please contact the Rev. Nina Pickerrell, ninap@gracecathedral.org, to make delivery arrangements or for more information.
