South Central Homeless Coalition is hosting a diaper drive for Region 6 through May 30.

All funds and diapers/wipes donated will benefit the children of North Dakota.

The coalition is accepting donations of the supplies themselves or monetary donations to purchase these items. With regional participation, items and dollars donated at the collection sites will be able to stay in those communities within the Jamestown region.

Region VI is comprised of the following counties: Barnes, Dickey, Foster, Griggs, LaMoure, Logan, McIntosh, Stutsman, and Wells.

During the last drive, in 2018, more than $5,300 in donations from the drive was awarded to sites all around Region VI including the Salvation Army and Community Action Region VI in Stutsman County, Gackle Area Food Pantry and county Social Services offices in Logan, LaMoure, Barnes, Dickey and Foster/Eddy/Wells. The goal this year is to raise at least $5,000.
