UTICA, N.Y. – Care Net Pregnancy Center of CNY is helping parents by distributing diapers at all of their locations over the next week.
Director of operations for client services, Jackie Rosa, says the need has increased since the state closed all schools in March to stop the spread of coronavirus.
“A lot of preschools and daycares provide these diapers for these kids when they're normally there. So, this is a need not only now, but all the time, because now the children are home with their families all day long," she said.
Care Net offers free services to parents and pregnant women by offering testing, ultrasounds and counseling.
They have offices in Utica, Rome, Camden, Herkimer, Oneida, Morrisville and Liverpool.
Anyone in need of diapers or who wants more information on Care Net can call 315-738-9435.
