FAIRFIELD- State Representatives Brenda Kupchick (R-132) & Laura Devlin (R-134) in cooperation with Operation Hope are hosting a Diaper Drive to help our Fairfield neighbors in need.

Diapers are incredibly costly and are not covered by Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits. At present time, Operation Hope does not have enough diapers on hand to meet the demand of the community.

Reps. Kupchick and Devlin are asking Fairfield residents for help by donating a package or two of diapers (all sizes) for babies and their mothers in need.

Here’s how you can help: donate a pack of diapers to one of our six Fairfield drop-off locations:

  • St. Paul’s Nursery School at 661 Old Post Road
  • A Child’s Garden at 100 Mona Terrace
  • Fairfield Public Library Main Branch at 1080 Old Post Road
  • Fairfield Woods Branch Library at 1147 Fairfield Wood Road

Donations are accepted until June 22.

Operation Hope Executive Director, Carla Miklos along with Rep. Kupchick will be at Saugatuck Sweets at 28 Reef Road on June 23rd from 1:00pm-3:00pm to conclude the diaper drive where residents will have another chance to make a donation.

If you have any questions, please call 800-842-1423, or call Carla at Operation Hope: 203-254-2935.
