FAIRFIELD- State Representative Laura Devlin (R-134) in cooperation with Operation Hope will be hosting their 5th Annual Diaper Drive to help any of our Fairfield neighbors in need of these baby essentials.
Diapers are quite expensive but they are an essential need for babies, and yet they are not covered by Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) benefits. At present time, Operation Hope does not have enough diapers on hand to meet the demand of the community.
Rep. Devlin is asking Fairfield residents for help by donating a package or two of diapers for babies and their mothers in need. If you are interested in donating (opened packs OK!) here’s you can help: simply bring your donation to one of our four Fairfield drop-off locations:
- Fairfield Wood Branch Library at 1147 Fairfield Woods Road
- Fairfield Public Library at 1080 Old Post Road
- Old Town Hall at 611 Old Post Road
- A Child’s Garden at 100 Mona Terrace
- St. Timothy’s at 4670 Congress Street
- St. Paul’s at 661 Old Post Road
Donations will be accepted from May 21 to June 24.
Join Rep. Devlin at Saugatuck Sweets at 28 Reef Road on Saturday, June 25 from 1-2pm with special guest First Selectwoman Brenda Kupchick 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.
