Help us cover our Bottom Line
At all Masses May 4/5 and May 11/12
Did you know 1 in 3 families struggle with the diaper need, forcing many families to re-use diapers so other needs can be covered?
St. Mary parish will host a two-week diaper drive May 4 & 5 and May 11 & 12 to benefit the Bottom Line Diaper Bank of Catholic Charities. Every year, the ministries of Catholic Charities help distribute more than 500,000 diapers to mothers and babies in need throughout northern Colorado.
In addition, assistance programs do not cover diaper purchases. 100% of financial donations are used to purchase supplies at wholesale—equaling 5 or more diapers for every dollar donated. Currently, sizes 4, 5, and 6 are the biggest need!
For questions visit ccdenver.org/diaper or contact Allison Sullivan 303.797.6128.
