OPERATION BABY NEW YEAR 2020 - 2021
St Cloud Area Holiday Diaper Drive Dec 1st - Jan 1st
020 - 2021 DIAPER GOAL
1in 3 families report a need for diaper assistance. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic that need has been greatly exasperated. To match the size and scope of that need Operation Baby New Year has decided to set a bold diaper goal for our 2020-2021 drive at 160,000 diapers!
If we are able to hit this goal we will not only be able to help hundreds of families with diaper assistance we will have surpassed 1,000,000 collected since our operation began in 2015!
No parent or guardian should have to choose between clean diapers and paying for their next meal or utility bill. With your help, we can bring in the new year with the spirit of community and supporting the organizations in our area who help families and our tiniest residents year round.
