The Woman's Infant and Children's Program of Hancock and Washington County needs your help to make their 2nd Annual Community Baby Shower a success on Saturday, September 9th from 10 to Noon at the Moore Community Center in Ellsworth.

They need packages of diapers and wipes! If you have children out of diapers you may have forgotten how many diapers infants go through in a day! And you may have gladly forgotten how much diapers cost!

With my children in their 30's I went onto the internet to check, and was told that infants go through 8 to 12 diapers a day! Consider this...

  • Babies 2 to 4 months old - Up to 10 diapers a day, or 300 a month
  • Babies 5 to 8 months old - Up to 9 diapers a day or 270 a month
  • Babies 9 to 12 month old - Up to 7 diapers a day or 210 a month

When you consider a diaper costs around 40 cents each your looking at a cost of $84 to $120.00 a month just in diapers!

So how can you help? Can you buy a bag or box of diapers? Maybe add a  box of wipes too? Then drop them off at the WIC Office in the Mill Mall. They are located in the back, closest to the Downeast Family YMCA.

Wouldn't it be awesome for every family that the Woman's and Infant Program of Hancock and Washington County serves to receive at least a package of diapers and wipes and more? It could happen, and I bet will happen with your generosity!
