THE DIAPER DRIVE RETURNS! MAY 12 – JUNE 9

Mother’s Day is coming so this means Social Ministries will kick off their diaper drive to bless our neighbors in need. Please help fill the playpen in the Gathering Space with diapers and wipes. We are especially in need of diapers sized 4, 5 and 6.  Money can also be donated which will be used to purchase diapers. Please write diaper drive on the memo line of your check and place it in the offering. The drive will run from May 12 – June 9. 

The diaper drive will benefit our local community partners: Rosemount and Burnsville Community Resource Centers and the Lewis House.

The National Diaper Bank conducted national research in 2023 and they found that 47% of families with kids in diapers struggle to provide enough clean diapers for their kids.

To fully understand how this could be true, we can look at how many diapers a baby might go through in a day: On average a baby up to 4 months old can go through 8-10 diapers per day, a 4- to 8-month-old baby can go through 8-9 diapers per day and then at 8 months and older babies can go through 6-7 diapers per day. Thus, the range can be anywhere from 42-70 diapers per WEEK! This could average $30 per week, thus $120 per month just in diapers.
