Help alleviate diaper need in our community.
Join United Way of Southern Maine (UWSM) for Family Day of Action, Sunday, November 21, for a drive-thru diaper drive benefitting the Michael Klahr Jewish Family Services Diaper Bank. Diaper need is a serious issue, not only throughout the US, but right here in Maine. Approximately 1 in 3 families nationwide report experiencing diaper need, yet existing safety-net programs such as SNAP and TANF do not support the purchase of diapers. Families are forced to make heart-wrenching choices between paying for rent or groceries and buying diapers. Your donation of diapers and wipes will make a significant impact for local families and across Maine.
