Diaper-A-Day

Image result for baby clip art

WHAT: Church of the Good Shepherd will be hosting a diaper pantry for WIC clients & others, living in Clinton, Bolton, Sterling, Lancaster, Berlin or Boylston or WIC Clinton clients. Thirty free diapers per month are available for qualified children, newborn to age 3 1/2.

      WHEN: First Wednesday of each month – 4:00-5:30 pm Third Tuesday of each month – 10:30 am- 12 pm (Recipients may pick up diapers once per month.)

WHERE: Church of the Good Shepherd, 209 Union Street, Clinton MA – 978-365-5169

Please bring your WIC Household ID number. If you are not enrolled in WIC, you must bring your child’s birth certificate to the first pick-up. Only parents or legal guardians may pick up diapers for a child. Diapers may be picked up once per month. For example, if you attend a Wednesday diaper pantry, you are not eligible to pick up more diapers at the Tuesday pantry in the same month.

It is our hope to supply diapers to all who qualify, but the reality is we may run out of diapers in certain sizes or run out of diapers completely. Your feedback and needs will be taken into consideration for any future diaper pantry openings.

Upcoming Diaper-A-Day Pantry Days:

Tuesday, June 20 @ 10:30am to 12pm

Wednesday July 5 @ 4-5:30pm

Tuesday July 18th @ 10:30am to 12pm

 Wednesday August 2 @ 4-5:30pm
