Did you know, in Alexandria, the percentage of children under the age of six living in poverty has tripled since 2005. Can you possibly imagine the challenges these families and children face every day? This is why the Supporting Friends supplement the purchase of disposable diapers and wipes for more than 160 infants and toddlers who are enrolled in The Campagna Center’s Early Head Start program. Their little bottoms require 50-60 cases of diapers per month, plus 21-25 cases of wipes – in other words, $2,000/month or $24,000/year, for which The Campagna Center receives no state or city funding.
- Diapers sizes 2 – 6 and/or unscented wipes (TCC purchases Wal-Mart’s Parent’s Choice Brand, and will accept donations of any brand), OR
- Check payable to The Campagna Center with Early Head Start in the memo line ($24.00 covers the cost of 200 Parent’s Choice Diapers and $12.00 covers the cost of 700 Parent’s Choice Wipes (unscented).
