Saugus Diaper Drive: April 3 – 28

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. In recognition of this, the Saugus Health Department will be sponsoring a Diaper Drive benefiting families.

According to the National Diaper Bank Network, “Women with diaper need also reported more difficulty with stress management, depression, and coping with trauma – which can negatively affect a child’s health and development;” increased stress and depression can in turn increase the chances of abuse.

Please consider helping those in our community with a donation:

  • New and unopened packages of diapers only
  • All sizes needed: Newborn to size 6; Sizes 5 and 6 are a greater need
  • Baby wipes

Collection Dates:         April 3 – April 28

Drop-Off Locations:    Town Hall, Saugus Senior Center, Saugus Public Library, YMCA

Drop-Off Times:          Regularly-scheduled hours at each building
