St. Vincent de Paul of Roscommon County Receives RCCF Grant to Assist with Diaper Purchase for the “Diaper Bank”

St. Vincent de Paul of Roscommon County was recently awarded a grant from the Roscommon County Community Foundation to assist with the purchase of diapers for their “Diaper Bank” program. This is an on going project for the needy families of Roscommon County and is intended to help mothers with children in diapers, receive free diapers, at least once a month. They also receive baby wipes and baby food if they are available. In the first five months of 2013, the Diaper Bank has distributed 5,880 diapers to 105 families.

The grant was awarded from three Endowment Funds administered by RCCF: The Roscommon County General Fund awarded $1,168.00, the Roscommon County Kellogg Youth Fund awarded $1,000.00 and the Zonta Club Women’s and Children’s Fund awarded $332.00 for this project.
