Did you know that food stamps do not cover personal hygiene products like diapers? Can you imagine being forced to choose between feeding your family and buying diapers for your little ones? Cobb Diaper Day collects donations of approximately 50,000 diapers each year for low-income families so that they don’t have to make that choice. Justin O’Dell is one of the founding members of Cobb Diaper Day and was honored to read a proclamation from Governor Sonny Perdue at the first Diaper Day event.
As a member of the 2013 event committee, Justin continues to support the diaper collection that helps ease the burden for hundreds of families. Start a collection in your neighborhood and bring the donations to one of the drop-off points during September and October or join us on the Marietta Square at 5:00 pm on October 28th for a community-wide collection. You may drop off your diaper donations at our offices at 506 Roswell Street, Suite 210 in Marietta prior to October 28th:
