Rep. Jesiel Hosting Diaper Drive

State Representative Sheri Jesiel will be hosting a diaper drive to collect diapers for those in need in Lake County. The diapers will be given to Diaper Depot, a Diaper Bank Project of Catholic Charities Lake County, which facilitates diaper collection and distribution.

Diapers are an essential and often overlooked need for families who struggle financially. Diapers are expensive and safety net programs like WIL and SNAP do not cover their cost. In Fiscal Year 2016 Diaper Depot assisted 3,490 children by distributing 167,558 diapers to children of all religious, racial, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds throughout Lake County.

Help a family in need by donating a pack of diapers. Representative Jesiel’s office in Antioch will serve as the collection site: 959 N. Main Street, Suite 1. You can purchase and drop off at the Representative’s District Office, or order straight from Amazon and have them shipped to the office. With questions about the diaper drive, contact Rep. Jesiel’s office at (847) 395-8000.

The collection will be open through December 10th. You can find more information on Diaper Depot here.
