The Spring Diaper Drive to support families in Franklin County is scheduled for May and June. The event is planned in honor of Mother's Day May 10th and Father's Day 
June 21st, as well as all individuals who care for young children. 
The Diaper Drive is sponsored by Franklin County Diaper Task Force, the United Way of Franklin County and Community Action.

You can help by donating diapers or making a financial contribution to purchase diapers. You can also help by organizing a diaper drive in May or June - where you work, with organizations you belong to or with friends!

Last year, the Diaper Task Force collected over 18,000 diapers but the need is great. All these diapers were distributed in less than 4 months to families who had emergency needs. Diapers can cost upwards of $100 per month and aren't covered by government assistance funds. For more information on the diaper gap and the importance of diapers, see the attached resources.

Donations can be brought to the May or June FCRN meeting or to the Greenfield Town Common between 10 AM and 2 PM on Saturday, June 20Checks can be made out to "Community Action" with "Diaper Drive" in the memo line, mailed to:
FCRN/Diaper Drive
Community Action
393 Main St
Greenfield, MA 01301
