A valley organization is hosting its 14th annual diaper drive to collect diapers and wipes for families in need.
Homeward Bound has a goal of collecting 200,000 diapers and $75,000 in emergency funds to help families who are struggling to buy the basics.
Diapers and baby wipes cannot be purchased with food stamps and many children are forced to go without. The emergency funds they hope to collect will go to cover medication, hearing aids and other health-related items parents often have to skip.
All types of wipes and sizes of diapers are accepted, although the greatest need is for larger diaper sizes (4, 5, 6).
Donations will be accepted now through Feb. 15.
