As a member of the Community Service Committee of the Raleigh Regional Association of REALTORS®, Fonville Morisey Sales Associate Sara DuChon based out of our ITB office is heading up a “Diaper Drive” for the Saint Saviour’s Center Healthy Baby program – The Diaper Train, a service that assists other agencies that help needy families in the Triangle by collecting & delivering diapers, baby wipes, etc. to those agencies.
Many people do not know that diapers are not provided as a part of food assistance programs, and babies cannot attend daycare in cloth diapers. In addition, cloth diapers are not allowed to be washed at Laundromats. As a result, many parents have to make difficult choices, as disposable diapers can cost up to $100 a month.
Last year, Saint Saviour’s provided 65,000 diapers to the various charitable organizations around Wake County. This year, they are also having folks who are eligible be able to pick up diapers and wipes at their location, so the need is going to increase significantly.
Our RRAR Diaper Drive will take place from April 30 to May 4. It is important that folks know to drop off newborn, and sizes 4 to 5, as these are where the most need arises. We will also accept pull-ups and wipes as well.
We have arranged for several real estate brokerage offices to be drop off points for the diapers – including the following Fonville Morisey offices:
We are very grateful that each of these offices have stepped up to join this effort. Thank you!
Please visit the Saint Saviour’s website for more information about their Healthy Baby program and the RRAR REALTOR Foundation of the Triangle for further information about the drive, including additional drop off locations.
Our Triangle families need us and Fonville Morisey is happy to assist in this effort!
