POMONA – 115th District State Representative Paul Jacobs (R-Pomona) announced his office is now sponsoring a holiday season diaper drive to benefit needy area children. Jacobs says in these tough economic times and to keep people working, community support is more important than ever.
“We have many wonderful organizations in our community that work hard to provide the best care and attention to our young children,” Jacobs said. “My office will be collecting diapers throughout the next several weeks leading up to Christmas to assist multiple childcare entities and parents throughout my district.”
Jacobs says he knows families are working hard to make ends meet and he wants them to feel the love and support that exists in the community.
“This is just one small effort, but together we can make a major difference for children and working families!,” Jacobs said. “Let’s work together to make this an annual tradition!”
Diaper donations may be dropped off Monday through Friday by appointment by calling (618) 534-9880 beginning now through Friday, December 17th at Representative Jacobs’ Carbondale office located at 206 W. College, Suite 122 in Carbondale.
