Diaper drive assists Healthy Baby Network

Members of the Leadership Rochester class of 2020 organized a diaper drive to benefit Healthy Baby Network.

The group collected diapers and wipes at the drive-thru donation site at Healthy Baby Network, 693 East Ave. behind the Strong-Todd House. Thanks to the outpouring of support from the greater Rochester community, the team’s efforts resulted in a collection of 106 boxes of diapers, 27 boxes of wipes, 42 individual packs of wipes, 4 containers of formula, 7 pacifiers, 4 tubes of Desitin, 5 packs of bottles, along with a bassinet and a bottle warmer. Monetary donations were collected, as well.
