Diaper Drive to Help Families in Need

February 19, 2018
Mental Health Support Services

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — Chesterfield-Colonial Heights Families First, a program of Chesterfield County’s Department of Mental Health Support Services, will hold a diaper drive during the month of March to assist their enrolled families. Last year, more than 10,200 diapers were collected. In addition to regular diapers, pull-up diapers and diaper wipes also are being collected.

“Unfortunately, for some families even providing necessities like diapers and wipes can be a challenge,” said Andelicia Neville, Families First program coordinator. “The diaper drive supports first-time parents enrolled in our Families First program as they continue on their journeys to become stronger parents. And stronger families create stronger communities.

“We so appreciate all of the support we receive from the community – every day, but particularly during March’s Diaper Drive,” Neville added.

All Chesterfield County Public Libraries, except for Central Library, which is closed for renovation, will collect unopened packages of disposal diapers, pull-ups and wipes during regular business hours. For library locations and hours, visit http://library.chesterfield.gov/ccpllocations/ or call 751-CCPL. The Colonial Heights library also is a drop-off site.

Families First is a nationally accredited program of Healthy Families Virginia that provides family support services to first-time parents to ensure that children become healthy, well-adjusted individuals who are ready to start school by age five.
