Soroptimists Aim to Collect 10,000 Diapers

Two local women’s groups are combining forces to collect 10,000 diapers for the Yolo Crisis Nursery.

Can you help by contributing a box of diapers? Donations will be accepted through May 19.

The two groups – Soroptimist International of Greater Davis and Soroptimist International of Woodland – have set up eight drop-off locations. Please drop off your diapers anytime during business hours.

In Davis:

  • 3rd Street Jeweler, 903 Third St
  • Union Bank, 300 E St.
  • Edward Jones, 2940 Spafford St., Suite 110
  • Carlton Senior Living, 2726 Fifth St.
  • Brooks Painting, 2860 W. Covell Blvd.

In Woodland:

  • Mojo’s Lounge and 428 Kitchen Restaurant, 428 First St.
  • National Town & Valley Properties, 296 West Main St.
  • Uvaggio Wine Bar, 703 Main St.

The Yolo Crisis Nursery uses up to 100 diapers a day, or 3,000 a month, according to Healther Sleuter, executive director.

“We’re so grateful to have community support to fill our ongoing need for diapers,” Sleuter says. “We love partnering with the Soroptimists in Davis and Woodland. If you’re able, please help make their Diaper Drive a success.”
