Free diapers and wipes from Sts. Joachim and Ann Care Service will be distributed via a drive-thru service in Lincoln and Warren counties this June. There are no income requirements, but families must pre-register for the 2nd annual Diaper Drive-Thru.
“Many of our families with young children are struggling to provide the most basic needs for their families. Diapers and wipes are expensive for our families, and we wanted to ease some of their burden,” said Pam Struckhoff, executive director at Sts. Joachim and Ann Care Service. “A drive-thru service will allow these families to safely access needed diapers and wipes while practicing social distancing.”
The drive-thru is open to the first 100 families in each county to sign up by June 11.
The event will be repeated in Warren County on June 19, and families can pre-register by calling Michelle at (636) 288-8229.
The Diaper Drive-Thru will be held in Lincoln County on June 12, and families can pre-register by calling Kim at (636) 699-8762.
“Thank you to our Lincoln County partners the Early Childhood Taskforce, Lincoln County Health Department, and Mercy, as well as the Warren County Health Department and Bank of Old Monroe, for helping make this Diaper Drive Thru a reality in Lincoln and Warren counties,” said Struckhoff. “We appreciate the support, and hope to continue this important event annually.”
Donations of diapers and wipes are always needed to support fragile families in St. Charles, Lincoln and Warren counties. Donations can be dropped off at the Care Service in St. Charles located at 4116 McClay Road. Donations are also accepted online.
