Goodwinds is proud to be a donation site for the Skagit Diaper Drive, happening this week, April 6-12, in Skagit County!
The brainchild of our very own Amelia Cook (co-owner of www.goodwinds.com), the Skagit Diaper Drive is intended to help families in need. Diapers are expensive, and according to a recent Yale study, families in need often cut back on food and utilities in order to afford diapers for their children. Some daycares won’t let children be dropped off without an adequate supply of diapers, so parents miss work if they can’t afford diapers, perpetuating the cycle of need. Amelia worked with Community Action Agency of Skagit County to set up the donation sites and publicize the event. Community Action will distribute diapers to needy families through WIC and the 13 Skagit Food Banks.
If you are in Skagit County and would like to donate, you can drop new disposable diapers, loose or in packages, at our office at 2629 Henson Road in Mount Vernon, WA.
Thank you for your support!
