|Diaper Drive Delivers for ACCESS Pregnancy Services
Answering a community call to action issued by our community
partners at Junior League of New Orleans, the employees at Entergy New Orleans
initiated a diaper drive to collect diapers and other necessities for moms and
babies in the New Orleans area. The drive, smartly titled The Bottom Line, was a huge success delivering
- 3032 Diapers,
- 20 packages of Baby Wipes,
- 5 Tubes of Baby Lotion, and
- Approximately $900 cash donations
to the Junior League Diaper Bank, where in turn, the diapers
and supplies would be sorted to be distributed through Catholic Charities
ACCESS Diaper Bank.
With the help and support of community partners
like Junior League and Entergy, ACCESS has been able to distribute
approximately 10,000 diapers to moms and babies in need each month. For more information about how you can help
or receive help through the ACCESS Diaper Bank, please visit the Maternity and
Adoption Services pages on our website.
