Charity collects almost 400,000 diapers for local families

The results are in! This year’s March of Diapers donation event, hosted by nonprofit Do the Right Thing, collected approximately 396,801 diapers for infants and kids. Over 199,000 wipes were also collected, along with adult diapers, feminine hygiene products, handmade baby blankets, money donations and more.

The donated space housed hundreds of boxes of diapers, sorted with the help of dozens of volunteers throughout March and early April.
