"Dipes & Wipes Collection-6:15PM-7:15PM"
by David Kourtz-Coordinator
Monday, November 22, 6:15 PM
This November, GLPA will again have a collection for the Teen Mother Program at the JOI Child Care Center in Lynn.Your support will help young families in need. Most of the moms that benefit from your donations are attending high school, and attending 'mothering' classes, and working to support their new family. Donations add to GLPA certification as a non-profit organization helping the community. In addition, last year members also made contributions of infant and toddler toiletries and clothing which were greatly appreciated.
We will collect on two Mondays from 6:15 to 7:15PM â€“ November 15 â€“Print Competition night and November 22 â€“Projected Image Competition night.
Original new packaged items are accepted and certainly appreciated. The JOI Center has provided a list of the items that are most needed and encourage selection from the following items if possible.
Diapers -any brand for size 2-5 or ages 6 months to 4 years
Wipes- sippy cups â€“socks-infant or toddler sizes
Baby personal toiletries e.g. shampoo, diaper rash ointment, toothbrushes, etc.
New infant-child clothes for ages 2 months - 4 years
Packaged or bottled baby food
Diaper bag or toddler knapsack
Optional Financial Donation Available
If you would prefer, we will accept monetary donations via a check or Venmo. 100% of these monetary donations made last year were used for diapers and to provided MBTA bus passes for the moms to get to school or work.

Your donations through GLPA are greatly appreciated as these family budgets are small and these donations provide significant help. With the holidays coming, I canâ€™t think of a better way to help folks who can use some support
