Roscoe Village businesses join forces for Bundled Blessings

Roscoe Village businesses are joining together to collect disposable diapers in recognition of Diaper Need Awareness Week (September 28 – October 3).  The collected diapers will be donated to the Bundled Blessings Diaper Pantry, an outreach program located in Evanston, IL.  

Diaper Need Awareness Week was created to mobilize efforts to help make a difference in the lives of the nearly 5.3 million babies in the U.S. aged three or younger who live in poor or low-income families.  Federal programs such as food stamps do not cover the cost of disposable diapers. 

During the period September 25 – October 3, new or opened packages of disposable diapers or pull-ups can be left at drop-boxes at these Roscoe Village businesses: Healing Foundations, Alex’s Music Studio, Unicoi Art Studio, Wonderland Activities Center, Child’s Voice, Musical Magic, and Kickin’.  Bundled Blessings will collect, then deliver the diapers to six social service agencies in and around Evanston, who distribute them to families in need.
