Marie’s Mission by the Numbers
On Saturday November 16th, the Mission distributed an all-time record number 148 Packages of diapers and wipes to 79 families! We had 4 new families join us. We also provided 24 tubes of Diaper cream
Our distribution day included many of our regulars along with volunteers from UMass Medical School who present their own programs on children’s health and wellness.
The UMass Medical School students also held a Trivia Night Fundraiser for Marie’s Mission at Redemption Rock raising over $800.00 for the Mission and providing a great time for all.
Diaper Time is Talk Time
We received a donation of approximately 75 board books from the Worcester Reads Program headed by Worcester School committee member John Monfredo. This allowed us to again distribute books to our littlest visitors and continue our Diaper Time is Talk Time program.
What we need
The most popular size this month was size 6 we gave out 39 packages and again 4T-5T pull-ups were very popular we gave out 33 (10 boys and 23 girls). We also distributed 31 packages of size 5.

We will be distributing pajamas at out distribution on December 21st and want to thank our supporters for the many donations we have received to date. We will also have our visit from Santa and pictures with Santa.
