“Marie’s Mission” by the Numbers
On Saturday, June 20th, the Mission distributed 136 Packages (4,080 diapers) of diapers and wipes to 77 families! We also gave out 13 tubes of diaper cream. Additionally, we welcomed 3 new families this month.
We handed out 40 board books and provided a handout of the “Free Summer Meals for Kids and Teens” sites and times for 2019. We also distributed small packages of swim diapers (3 per package) along with buckets and shovels.
Jane and Linda tracked the numbers and handed out packages. Father Jose managed the book table and talked with quests about our “Diaper Time is Talk Time “early reading program. Sarah covered the buckets and swim diapers and the Galvin boys managed the craft table helping little guests make monsters and “jet-packs” out of pool noodles.
For July we will be handing out swimmy diapers (young children can’t go to public pools or spray parks without them).
What we Need
Larger sizes (4, 5, 6,) continue to be our most popular. We gave out 19 packages of size six this month and 11 4T/5T pullups (4 boys and 6 girls)
Fallon Health Community Relations diaper drive for “Marie’s Mission” brought in 1100 diapers 15 packages of wipes and a $500.00 cash donation. Marie’s Mission had a table at the “Hope for Worcester” annual Day of Hope. Thanks to Nikki D for getting us involved. We passed out 50 sample packages and MM pamphlets and spoke with many potential guests and area agencies.
