Community Diaper Drive a Huge Success!
The community diaper drive that was the chosen project of the Nevada County Community for Obama’s National Day of Service was a huge success. Cheryl Cook and her team of volunteers manned booths at three locations: SPD of Nevada City, Raley’s and CVS Pharmacy of Grass Valley, and collected 4,000 diapers and $930 in cash for the Nevada County Diaper Project. This will supply diapers to young mothers in the county for two months.
Many thanks go to Cheryl and her volunteers for their time and effort, the managers of SPD, Raley’s and CVS Pharmacy for the use of their store sites, Mike Dobbins of The Wildwood Independent for his donation for the printing of flyers, and to the residents of Nevada County who so generously contributed both diapers and cash to the project.
