The Guardian Angel Center, Helpmates Charitable Giving Foundation, Inc., has recently received a grant from the Women Who Care to start a new program.
â€śWe are working on starting a new disposable diapers program,â€ť said Clythera Hornung, volunteer and co-grant contact. â€śIt is a program that we have never done in the past, and it will be a nice benefit to our clients.â€ť
Guardian Angels will lend a helping hand to those who may find it difficult to purchase diapers in an inexpensive manner.
â€śIn order to make your dollars stretch you need to purchase in bulk, but when you are short on cash it is hard to buy a large amount of diapers,â€ť said Hornung. â€śWe will buy in bulk and give away 500-1,000 diapers a year. That is 100 diapers per visit, and people are eligible to come once a month up to five times a year.â€ť
Since its establishment, The Guardian Angel Center pursues assisting families who struggle financially with the clothing needs of infants, toddlers and children.
