Wesleyan Diaper Drive

Nebraska Wesleyan University is reaching out to student and low income mothers in the community this week, by providing them with some of the things they need most.

A group of students and faculty members at Nebraska Wesleyan University have formed a group to help student mothers attend school and take care of their families.

The group is holding a donation drive this week to provide diapers and wipes for student moms.

Nebraska Wesleyan student, Sabreena Bathke is not only studies biology at the University but is a mother as well.

The pegnancy/childcare advocacy team formed the group because there was just not enough resources in the community to help low income mothers.

Providing her child with the basic necessity of a clean diaper along with nutrition and the different resources it would make a world of difference.

Nebraska Wesleyan sororities and fraternities found out about the need for diapers and felt compelled to lend a hand by encouraging their members to contribute items.

You sort of realize the gratitude that that help brings.

The drive will not only help mothers at the University but will also help low income mothers in Lincoln as well.

The good neighbor community center has provided diapers to over a thousand babies like Matthew this year but they say they could always use more.

Donations can be dropped off at 3 different locations at the Nebraska Wesleyan Univerity campus through October eighth.

They include Great Hall In the Smith-Curtis Administrator Building, The first floor of Old Main, or the Student Health and Wellness Center, located in Pioneer Hall.

Cash Donations can be sent to NWU Diaper Drive

5000 St. Paul Ave.

Lincoln, NE 68504

The drive continues through October 18th.
