Diapers in demand for young moms

Any spare boxes of diapers kicking around the house that could benefit needy young moms?

If so, you could help out the Terra Centre for pregnant and parenting teens with their initiative called Baby Heroes, which is set to wrap up this weekend at West Edmonton Mall.

“A baby can go through up to 200 diapers a month,” said campaign spokesman Marcus Gurske. “Our goal is no child in Edmonton will have a bare behind.”

Gurske said the group was hoping for 3,500 to 5,000 boxes of diapers, and that every day counts as the three-week event draws to a close this Sunday.

To drop off some diapers for needy young moms, head to West Edmonton Mall Phase One and look for signage for the diaper drive around the Centre Fountain.
