Annual Conference Logistics:

Diaper Drive!

  • 1 in 3 families struggle with diaper need in the U.S.
  • In Illinois, 25% of WIC recipients are infants (WIC does NOT provide diapers)

To help, please bring a pack of diapers to the 5th Annual Conference! Last year, we were able to raise 698 diapers as our first diaper drive effort! We'd love to double that number this year!
