Eastside Baby Corner Holds Diaper Need Awareness Week 
September 24 - 30
Woodland Terrace   

Help EBC spread the word on diaper need during Diaper Need Awareness week and all year long. Giving diapers to families in need is really important. There are so many ways that this can be done.

"Giving a family diapers means that the parents have more money for rent, food, medical bills, energy bills - the basic necessities of life. At the same time, supplying a family with diapers means they can change diapers often enough to keep their baby healthy and comfortable. We often take so much for granted. But our clients do not." Quote from Nancy, an agency partner provider of EBC.  Visit their website or view more information.
