Stephanie Barclay and Friends Donate Diapers for Local Babies

Stephanie Barclay and her friends initiated a diaper drive for Womenade clients!  Public health nurses will distribute the diapers to families throughout the county.  Often parents are forced to choose between milk and diapers.  Womenade is grateful for this outreach.

Contact me if you would like to sponsor your own drive.
