West Michigan Walgreens Is Holding A Diaper Drive, May 5-11
Area Walgreens stores are holding a Diaper Drive for Pine
Rest’s Mother and Baby Program during the week of May 5. The Pine Rest program
is a new short-term, intensive, day treatment program for women experiencing
Perinatal Mood Disorders. Only the second of its kind in the country, mothers
are able to bring their baby with them to improve mother and baby bonding.
The Diaper Drive will help Pine Rest stock the nursery
and use them to share with moms in need. Walgreens has a special offer the week
of May 5, buy one pack of Walgreens diapers at full price and get the second
packet half off. Collection boxes are near the store entrances.
Several of the Walgreens in the West Michigan region are
participating with the Cutlerville store manager Stu Bellant organizing the
drive: Big Rapids (1), Cutlerville (1), Grand Rapids (7), Greenville (1),
Holland (4), Ionia (1), Kentwood (2), Lowell, (1), South Haven (1), and Wyoming
When you go
to Walgreens the week of May 5, take a minute to Make a Mother’s Day and buy
some diapers. If you or someone you love is suffering from postpartum
depression, get help; call 800-678-5500.
