Four Richmond Schools Holding Diaper Drives

WHO:

Rainbow Station schools provide educational development programs for children 0-14 including extended day nursery school, preschool, pre-K and Kindergarten programming as well as before- and after-school care and summer camps. Each school has an on-site infirmary attended by a pediatric nurse to provide emergency back-up care for mildly ill children. "The Get Well Place" with its specialized reverse ventilation system is one of only 300 facilities estimated to provide this service in nation. There are nine Rainbow Stations locations in Virginia, North Carolina and Texas with four located in the Richmond area.

Capital Diaper Bank is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing diapers to poor and low-income families in the Central Virginia area through its member organizations. Modeled on successful regional food banks, CDB collects disposable diapers and cash donations (which are used to purchase diapers in bulk). The diapers are then distributed to poor and low-income families through CDB's member organizations - non-profits that serve poor and low-income families.

WHAT:

Four different Rainbow Station schools located in the Richmond area are holding diaper drives running through March 30. All diapers and wipe donations dropped off at the schools will be donated to the Capital Diaper Bank, which supplies diapers to families in need in Richmond, Henrico and Chesterfield counties.

WHEN:

Donations of diapers and wipes will be accepted through March 30. The schools are open from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
