Christ Child Society Diaper Drop

When a baby cries, one of the first things Mom checks is his diaper. How do you soothe a crying baby if you don't have a clean, dry diaper? Imagine the stress and despair Moms feel when they can't soothe their babies in a most basic way.  This Mother's Day, the Christ Child Society wants to make the lives of infants, toddlers and Moms in our community better, healthier and safer! And, what a wonderful way to make Mother's Day special for Moms who are truly in need.

Diaper Drop Off will take place on Wednesday, May 5th from 9 AM to 2 PM in front of the Christ Child Clothing Center or you can order diapers through our Amazon Wish List and they will be delivered right to our Clothing Center!
