UTICA, N.Y. – The Central New York chapter of Citizen Action has launched a series of diaper drives to help parents in need.

Many families are struggling to provide basic needs for young children during the pandemic, and the cost of diapers can add up quickly, especially for families with multiple children.

The first event was held at the Mohawk Valley Latino Association on Scott Street in Utica on July 21.

Upcoming drives are planned for:

  • Aug. 5: Jervis Library in Rome
  • Sept. 12: Cornerstone Church in Utica
  • Sept. 18: Tabernacle Church in Utica

Diaper donations can be dropped off at locations in Utica, Rome, New Hartford and Westernville. Call 315-281-4939 for more details.

Monetary donations can also be made through the Public Policy and Education Fund.
