Diocesan-wide Diaper Drive aims to support local crisis pregnancy centers and parenting programs

Diocese of Green Bay 150th Anniversary LogoGREEN BAY, Wis. (Sept. 27, 2018) – During the month of October, Catholic Charities and the diocesan Office of Marriage, Family Life, and Pro-Life will be collecting diapers for the fourth annual Diocesan-wide Diaper Drive. Diapers and baby wipes can be dropped off at Catholic Charities locations in Green Bay, as well as at several crisis pregnancy centers across northeastern Wisconsin.

Consulting with area pregnancy centers and hearing the needs of Catholic Charities clients, the Diocesan-wide Diaper Drive aims to support families in a very practical way. Over 42,000 diapers were collected last year.

“On average, a baby requires a package of diapers per week. One package of diapers is $10 which means families will spend over $500 on diapers per year. The idea behind our diaper drive is to alleviate some of the financial burdens, to free up some of the funds our clients would spend on diapers, so they can spend that on their rent or additional baby supplies that aren’t available through other community programs,” said Cassandra Krueger, child and family services case manager for Catholic Charities.  

There is a huge need within our area for diapers, but particularly the larger ones for toddlers, sizes 3-6. Diapers and baby wipes may be dropped off at the Catholic Charities office in Green Bay, as well as Mother and Unborn Baby Care in Appleton, the A&A Alexandrina Center in Green Bay, Bay Area Pregnancy Services in Marinette, Bella Medical Clinic in Oshkosh, Hope Life Center in Antigo, and The Crossing of Manitowoc County.
