Diaper Drop

More than 150 thousand diapers were collected during Saturday's wrap-up of the month long Capital Area Diaper Drop. Albertson's hosted the event and rolled out an astounding 35 baskets of diapers. Organizers say all the diapers collected during the drive will go to help needy families in our area. "Diapers are never a donated product at the food bank so to have this many diapers from the local community is just overwhelming, said Cindy Wagner, of Second Harvest Food Bank. "As we approach 200,000 diapers we are so overwhelmed. We cannot thank their community enough for their support," said Christine Dreps, the Capitol Area Healthy Start. From 10 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. Saturday, truckloads of diapers rolled into the Albertson's parking lot on Thomasville Road. Including nearly 20 thousand from Florida State University. The final tally will be counted on Monday morning.
