Diaper Drive

Every day, hundreds of infants and toddlers within our community go without one of their most basic needs – diapers. Saint Agnes Holy Cross Center for Women in downtown Fresno is helping to remedy this problem by providing free diapers to parents who cannot afford them. In one month alone, the Center supplies diapers to more than 200 families. Sadly, the demand almost always exceeds the supply.

During the 16th annual Diaper Drive, April 29-May 31, Saint Agnes Women's Club is once again asking our community for support – help us meet our goal of collecting 30,000 diapers and $30,000 in 30 days.

Join us in celebrating the kick-off to this year's Diaper Drive, Tuesday, April 29, 5:30 p.m. at The Elbow Room, sponsored by
Ooh LaLa. To purchase tickets for the Kick Off event, contact Saint Agnes Foundaiton. Online Ticket sales will be made availble the week of April 21.
