Catholic Charities is excited to announce that they are partnering with the Diaper Bank of North Carolina to help ensure families are able to provide a healthy home environment for the children. Through this partnership, the Catholic Charities Cape Fear Regional Office in Wilmington will serve as a distribution site for diapers. Emilie Hart, the Cape Fear Regional Director explained, “We have provided diapers from this office in the past. However, this new partnership will allow us to greatly increase the number of families we are able to assist.”
Families are able to visit the Wilmington office once a month to receive diapers. Catholic Charities hopes to serve 30 families each month. In the past, over 90% of families who receive diapers are living below the Federal Poverty Level.
If you would like to donate diapers to help in this effort to assist families with young children, please contact the Diaper Bank of North Carolina at (910) 632-0636. For questions related to the Catholic Charities Wilmington office, please Martha Crilly at 910-251-8130 ext. 14.
