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 15th annual Diaper Drive, April 29-May 31, Saint Agnes Women's Club reached its goal of collecting 30,000 diapers and $30,000 in 30 days. While totals are still being tabulated, Women’s Club members anticipate the tally to reach more than 31,000 diapers and more than $38,000!
Special thanks to all our sponsors and those who made this year’s Drive a great success. It is without a doubt, your continued support that makes our events possible.
