Catholic Charities diaper drive

The DuBois office of Catholic Charities Counseling and Adoption Services is conducting its 24th annual diaper drive during the month of July.

Area churches are asked to act as local collection centers.

Clothing, diapers, infant toiletries and monetary donations are being collected to help area families or single parents who have difficulty providing these items.

Pregnancy and Parenting Support Program, staffed by CCCAS, provides services to expecting families and families with children under age 1. Services are free of charge and include: pregnancy counseling, parenting education and support, infant clothing, diapers, formula and baby toiletry items for infants up to age 1.

Many items are made available through donations given by local residents and churches. Anyone wishing to make a donation or who would like further information on these services should contact CCCAS. In DuBois/Clearfield areas call 371-4717 or 765-2215.

Catholic Charities is a United Way member agency.
