Thanks for donating to Diaper Drive

To the editor:

This may have been a cold winter, but the generosity of our local community has warmed our hearts and kept hundreds of babies dry. Community Giving Tree’s February/March Diaper Drive was our most successful yet, collecting over 13,000 diapers and 50 packages of wipes. We’d like to thank the following preschools, church groups and other organizations for helping keep local babies in need clean, dry and healthy:

Andover School of Montessori; Caterpillar Club House, Beverly; Cole Preschool, Boxford; Georgetown Church of Jesus Christ and the Latter Day Saints; Girl Scout Troop 85225, Boxford, Georgetown and Topsfield; The Goddard School, Middleton; Hamilton-Wenham Mothers Club; Joyful Noises, Topsfield; Kindercare, North Andover; Ladies Charitable Society of the Second Congregational Church, West Boxford; Manchester Mothers Club; New England Montessori School, North Andover; Newburyport Montessori School; North Shore Montessori School, Rowley; Parker River Preschool, Rowley; Temple Emanuel, Andover; Tiny Tunes, Andover; Trinity Preschool, Topsfield.

More than 4,000 of these diapers came from thoughtful individuals who dropped diapers off at the Giving Center in West Boxford.

Again, we are deeply grateful to all of these individuals and groups for their caring response to kids in need.

If any other groups wish to join one of Community Giving Tree’s drives, please contact gina@communitygivingtree.org or visit our website at www.communitygivingtree.org.
