In September, we were unable to purchase any low cost baby items from the Community FoodBank and National Diaper Bank. Supplies were being diverted to meet the critical need in States hit by natural disasters. Yet, we saw no decline in the number of clients coming to North Porch for assistance.
Our stocks are running low. Throughout the month of October, we will be collecting formula and size 5 and 6 diapers, to assist mothers and caregivers who lack the means to feed and care for their hungry children.
We are grateful for those who routinely remember to donate to our collection barrels. Drop off your donation at any time this month. Collection bins are in the Narthex and by the parking lot entrance. We welcome cash & check contributions made payable to North Porch in envelopes clearly marked “North Porch”. You can also make a contribution through PayPal at http://www.northporch.org/northporch/make-a-donation/
