Support local families during a citywide Diaper Drive

By  | 

LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - The second Walmart Diaper Drive in Lincoln is coming up on Saturday, October 13 and Sunday, October 14.

The donated diapers will be used by participants in two programs of the Lincoln Lancaster County Health Department (LLCHD) -- the WIC (Women, Infants and Children) program and the Healthy Families America home visitation program.

Diapers can be dropped off from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday at all four Walmart locations:
4701 N. 27th Street
3400 N. 85th Street
8700 Andermatt
2500 Jamie Lane

StarTran buses will be parked near the entrances to the stores to collect the diapers. The agencies have a special need for larger diapers, sizes 3 and above.

The first drive last year’s brought in nearly 45,000 diapers (1,205 packs) and 914 packages of wipes -- enough to provide 150 children with 10 diapers each day for a month.
