THE DIAPER DEPOT AT CENTRAL PROVIDES DISPOSABLE DIAPERS FOR BABIES AND TODDLERS WHOSE FAMILIES ARE STRUGGLING TO MEET THIS VERY BASIC NEED.
FAMILIES ARE SERVED REGARDLESS OF RACE, RELIGION OR ETHNICITY.
Parents, grandparents, or legal guardians may register a child in need of diapers. Children may only be registered once.
At the monthly event, families can receive 50 diapers or 15 training pants for one or two children.
Also families may be given free-range eggs courtesy of Pete and Gerry’s in Greencastle and in-season produce from SCAAP’s Gleaning Project.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
There are two opportunities each month. On Wednesday, before the distribution event, at 3 pm,
volunteers sort and pack diapers for about 1 to 1.5 hours. On Saturday, set up begins at 9 am with
distribution from 10 am until noon. Volunteers are needed until diapers are all stored at around 12:30 pm.
DD@C accepts donations of diapers and money. Organizations can conduct a diaper drive.
The DD@C mission is run totally by volunteers from Central Presbyterian and interested community members. Students from the local high schools are regular volunteers and are
greatly appreciated. A board of directors meets monthly to reevaluate the program.
All diapers are manufactured in Pennsylvania and are purchased from McKesson Industries. The
average monthly diaper budget is $1500 to $2500. Funds are obtained from grants including The Franklin County Community Foundation and The Greater Harrisburg Foundation Upstream Grant. The parent foundation for both grants is The Foundation for Enhancing Communities. Other funds are from many generous organizations and individuals.
