ELLSWORTH – Downeast Community Partners is holding its first Fill a Bus diaper drive.
During the month of March, the nonprofit is collecting as many diapers as possible. The drive supports the Hancock County Child Abuse and Neglect Council.
“One in three families struggles to provide diapers for their children and that can lead to, you know, uncomfortable situations for families,” said Sarah Hardison, a council educator.
The diaper drive begins on March 1 and any size is appreciated. Organizers just ask that the diapers come in unopened packages.
Diapers also can be dropped off at Hannaford, Shaws, Marden’s and the Community Closet.
