More than 8,800 diapers were donated to assist families in need during the Chesterfield-Colonial Heights Families First, March Diaper Drive.
Andelicia Neville, Families First program coordinator, is thankful for the countless individuals and organizations that made donations at any branch of the Chesterfield County Public Library, Colonial Heights Public Library, county WIC sites, Chesterfield County Department of Mental Health Support Services, Chester Presbyterian Church, New Covenant Church, Chesterfield Seventh-Day Adventist Church or Matoaca United Methodist Church.
“We are truly delighted and grateful for the generosity of the Chesterfield County and Colonial Heights communities for making this diaper drive a tremendous success,” said Neville. “Now, we will be able to assist 65 families with diapering their babies.”
