In conjunction with the April's National Child Abuse Prevention Month and the National Week of the Young Child (April 10-16), the St. Thomas Child Development Center community is reaching out to the families in crisis served by Project Baby Bottoms, a local project dedicated to providing low-income areas and families with diapers and wipes.
The Child Development Center is accepting donations of new disposable diapers (all sizes) and diaper wipes. Cribs designated for donations will be set up at two locations on the university's St. Paul campus:
- Campus Way, second floor of the Anderson Student Center
- Child Development Center, northwest corner of Grand Avenue and Finn Street
Donations will be accepted from Monday, April 15, through noon Friday, April 19.
The generosity of the campus community in previous years has helped designated organizations in their efforts to supply needy families with these materials. The CDC staff thanks the campus community for its continued support in outreach to those in need.
