Local organization helping those in need, one diaper at a time
SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- A Syracuse organization is holding a diaper drive to help families in need this holiday season.
So far Jubilee Homes has collected more than 7,000 diapers for the CNY Diaper Bank, which helps provide diapers to low-income families.
Diapers can cost a family between $75 to $100 each month.
"Families of low-income can spend up to 15-percent of their income on diapers," says Rachel Ryan of Jubilee Homes. "It's not covered by WIC, it's not covered by food stamps; so there's a real need in the community for diapers."
Jubilee Homes is taking diaper donations at its office at 119 South Ave. through Monday, December 19th. For more information, call 315-428-0070.
