State Reps & United Way Host Diaper Drive

State Reps. Pam Staneski (R-119) and Charles Ferraro (R-117) along with State Rep. Kim Rose (D-118) and State Senator Gayle Slossberg (D-14) in cooperation with the United Way of Milford and TEAM, Inc. are hosting a City-Wide Diaper Drive to celebrate United Way’s 60th Anniversary in Milford. The drive lasts until until September 30.

Diapers are incredibly costly and are not covered by Woman, Infants and Children (WIC) and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits.

According to the National Diaper Bank Network, 1 in 3 American families will struggle to afford diapers. Locally, this problem touches about 16.5% of Milford residents.

The United Way of Milford, in cooperation with the Milford Legislative Delegation and TEAM, Inc. of Derby want to help these families by converting their Diaper Closet into a much larger Diaper Bank, with a constant supply of diapers in all sizes.
