Did you know that food stamps don’t cover diapers? Without diapers, a child can’t go to daycare and without daycare, a parent can’t go to work to support the family. That’s why every year we ask the community to help us stock the JFS Food Pantry with diapers, pull-ups, and wipes for families in need. In 2016, we collected more than 91,000 diapers and wipes. Save the date for our 7th Annual Diaper Shower, October 22nd, 2017!
